It must be something to do with unforgettable childhood holidays touring the remote Scottish coast in a jam-packed camper van that fired Brigid Benson's fascination for the sea. Or perhaps it was Cornish summers under billowing canvas or maybe home life on a peninsula, with Wales over the water to one side and Ireland across the waves to another. Whatever the spark, the intriguing character of places and people by the sea continues to inspire her writing. Craig Easton feels privileged that his work takes him to photograph all over the world. Wherever he goes, the landscape and weather inspire him to show not just what a place looks like, but what it feels like. When he's taking time out, chances are you'll find him with his camera in the west of Scotland or in the east playing golf badly.
