A Passage through Time . Acclaimed photographer Charles March (b. 1955 in London; lives and works in Goodwood, West Sussex) worked with Stanley Kubrick on his film Barry Lyndon before starting a successful career in commercial photography. When the digital revolution in photography took off, he developed his own personal technique, in which he uses the camera almost like a paintbrush to create images of landscapes and nature that brim with emotion and movement. The images for this new series, which reads like a pictorial journey, were shot over the last five years in a single location, Gleann Badraig (Scottish Gaelic for Glen Batrick) on the sparsely populated Scottish island of Jura. March has collaborated with the well-known Scottish poet Ken Cockburn to create a book that takes the reader beyond mere photography to evoke not only the island’s atmosphere, but also the thoughts and feelings a person has in one of the world’s most remote places.
