" We photographers are nothing but a pack of crooks, thieves and voyeurs. We are to be found everywhere we are not wanted ~ We betray secrets that were never entrusted to us, we spy shamelessly on things that are not our business ~ And end up the hoarders of a vast quantity of stolen goods " ~ Brassai

On a recent early morning walk on a deserted beach in an area called the 'Panhandle' on the Northern most tip of Cyprus (Turkish occupied area) I was inspired to photograph this wonderful seascape by a long favorite British artist of mine Joseph Mallord William Turner, better known as J.M.W. Turner, was born on April 23, 1775, in Covent Garden, London, England. Turner brought luminosity and Romantic imagery to his subjects and his often violent seascapes. His work—initially realistic—became more fluid and poetic, and is now regarded as a predecessor to Impressionism. Turner died on December 19, 1851, in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, London, England.
