About The Artwork

_________________________ “But what is there, west of the sun?” I asked. She shook her head again. “I don’t know. Maybe nothing. Or maybe something.” These two lines from Haruki Murakami‘s 1992 novel, South of the Border, West of the Sun, gave birth to a concept that has come to represent my photography and the way in which I work. In ‘West of the Sun’, I had found a perfect description of the state of mind into which I enter, the zone within which I work. As if forever seeking that perfect image – chasing my tail whilst striving to reach that mystical land beyond the horizon, over the rainbow and to the West of the Sun. Thanks to Murakami I now have the glue that holds my landscapes together. The umbrella under which my work can live as I document my journey towards that elusive world, to the West of the Sun. _________________________ Images can also be printed to order. All prints are printed by the photographer in his darkroom. Every image will form part of the edition of 20, irrespective of it's size.

Toby has been taking black and white photographs since 1989, always using an old Nikkormat and the same 24mm lens he 'borrowed' from his father over twenty years ago. His images are never cropped, but are framed instinctively at the time of taking. They are then brought to life with a pinch of magic - and luck - expertly secreted within the science and chemicals of the darkroom. Whether he is photographing landscapes or people, Toby approaches his work in the same way, moving through his environment surprisingly quickly. Always watching and absorbing, constantly experimenting with framing and composition. Toby has an ability to depict the world that goes beyond the literal representation that we have come to expect from photography. His images suggest myths and magic beyond their four corners, challenging the viewer to see the world, and the medium, in a different way.
