Geoffrey Howe Wins LPA Landscape Gold Award

LPA Landscape Single Image Winner

Geoffrey Howe's winning image in our Landscape single entry competition was taken during a trip to Morocco in 2009. "We were on a mountain pass in the South on our way to the desert region where I was to take a set of images of the 'Groupe des Bambaras', a Berber traditional music and dance group," says Geoffrey. "I like the strong abstract nature of the image, and the depth created by the winding road that leads your eye down to the building at the bottom. It's one of my favourites from the series, and seemed to fulfil the brief of the competition."

Geoffrey's main area of work is dance photography and portrait work. He works with The Sole dance company on their performances at London's The Place theatre. He originally trained in art and design and was involved in furniture and interior design before moving into photography, abstract sculpture and painting.

"I have a strong connection with Vitsoe who manufacture the 606 furniture system designed by Dieter Rams in 1960," he says. "I went to Germany to photograph Dietrich Lub, who was one of the early designers of Braun products in the 1960s and 70s. I photograph many of the Vitsoe systems installed in homes and workplaces, mostly in London but also in Tokyo, Paris and Palma."

Geoffrey likes showing movement in his photographs and is currently working on some abstract portrait shots that include movement.
