A selection of images and short stories by Tom Ramwell
Welcome friends, to my fine art and prints gallery. Here you will find a selection of my photography. Sometimes my photos aim to tell a story, or they simply capture the beauty of the landscape around us. My style is still being formed, I prefer not to be constricted by boundaries or subjects, remaining free to focus on that which I direct my attention to, or that which I feel a connection with. I hope you enjoy my images and please support me and my projects by purchasing ones that you like. They are available from postcard to large format, prints, mounted and/or framed.
John Muir believed that wilderness is a necessity and that there must be places for human beings to satisfy their souls. He believed that only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. Muir also believed that the battle for conservation must go on endlessly, as it is part of the universal warfare between right and wrong. He believed that nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine into trees and that the winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn. Muir also believed that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity, and that he must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.
This image, with the little tin hut of Keem Bay, Achill Island, Ireland, was given as a gift to the Film and Art Director of the famous Martin McDonagh film, 'The Banshees of Inisherin'. A copy was also given to 'The Lady of the Lamp', who was also instrumental in ensuring the success of the film.
Book design is the art of incorporating the content, style, format, design, and sequence of the various components of a book into a coherent whole. In the words of Jan Tschichold, "methods and rules upon which it is impossible to improve, have been developed over centuries. To produce perfect books, these rules have to be brought back to life and applied."
