Challenge #2: Edwin Smith

Edwin Smith was a British photographer best known for pictures that supposedly helped define what we imagine as 'Britishness'. He captured English gardens, landscapes and architecture with "a remarkable, almost sensuous feeling for surfaces and textures". I chose him as the FFC topic so we would look at other photographers' works and could try and discover our surroundings in a similar way; in black and white that is, with strong contrasts, yet mellow and poetic. Never mind the Britishness...
