'Human Landscapes':
Two subjects I enjoy in photography are the mess of life on the streets, and the tangle of trees in the bush. I like the way they are both so similar and stark even though one is moving uncontrollably and the other stationary. I loosely call these photographs Human Landscapes. For this exhibition I have blended both subjects together, since each inspires the other.

The street photographs were made during the 2016 Christmas rush on Lambton Quay in Wellington, New Zealand. The trees were a few months earlier, in the wet light of winter, within Longbush near Martinborough - about one hour’s drive from Wellington. Longbush was a term used for the old narrow bush-lines which followed roads and rivers to prevent stock from wandering.

'Banks of the Arrow':
Last winter I waited for three days by the Arrow River in Arrowtown. In my small, cosy campervan I could observe the changing light in the hills, trees and grasses, and prepare for the best time to pounce - as happened early one morning in minus 2 degrees and everything frozen.

Julian Ward has been exhibiting his black and white photography at Photospace Gallery since 2002.
