I first visited Poppit Sands in 2007 when I moved to Wales. It is a large beach and I soon discovered a number of special places where the tides created unusual patterns in the sand. These patterns and shapes have captivated me for many years. It always feels new on Poppit, so I think that it is not really a photographic project as such, but a never ending process of discovering and revealing what is there. It is a photographic world full of dead ends and stop signs and false starts - and then the occasional revelation and temptation and suggestion. And then frustration. It is like a drug - it gives and takes.
