Robert Laynton has engaged in photography as an occasional hobby since the early 1970’s. Despite some occasional forays into portraiture, his main focus is on landscape work. Over the Millennium period he engaged in a photographic documentary project recording the area in which he lives. Academic studies and life events sometimes put his photography on hold, so there are periods where little is posted here and other times when there is a flurry of activity. Originally working with 35mm Transparency film, he moved to digital photography early in the millennium. His other interests include spirituality, psychology, walking, jazz, reading American Crime Fiction from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, vintage comics and magazines, and watching classic movies, especially film noir. He lives in England.
