The landscape of the Midlands has always captured his imagination, prompting a number of return visits. Taken while Cooper was working in Nottingham as a lecturer on Nottingham Trent Polytechnics landmark Creative Photography course, these three small photographs capture his poetic vision of the area. The dense, monochrome images transform environmental features into textures, a tree becoming a streak across the mottled grey of a wall, wild flowers a splash of light against a dark backdrop of undergrowth.
