John Eastwood is a Photographic Artist from
Stockport who specialises in landscapes of Cheshire, Derbyshire
and the Staffordshire Moorlands, seeking always the more imaginative
perspective. Avoiding the safe, established postcard clichés
so often seen John combines imagination with an indefinable
sense of place, crafting each image by featuring the texture
of the landscape accentuated by season and natural light, always
using a fresh and individual eye.
John is the official photographer of All Saints Church,
Daresbury, Cheshire and exhibits across the region at commercial
exhibitions and County/Country Shows. He was commissioned by
Halton Borough Council to design the 2005 Civic Christmas Card.
Of his work, John says:
of the landscape have fascinated me from a young age. Not
the stereotypical sweeping vistas of the rolling hills and
plains, but the more subtle details that lay hidden within,
waiting to be discovered or found.
Sometimes this can be done using the passage of time and the
effect of weathering on the fabric of the landscape, at other
times it can be achieved using seasonal variations or a change
in light due to weather conditions.”
