Joe Cornish

My first National Trust assignment was in 1989. I like to think I have worked for the Trust in four decades! To begin with, a simple love of the outdoors led me into landscape photography; subsequently, experience in the landscape has defined my ethos and mission. Working for the Trust, for the cause of conservation and for the common good, has helped me to develop as a photographer and as a person. In a culture characterised by consumption and self-interest, studying light, time, space and form with a camera encourages me to connect with nature, and to assert we are part of it, not apart from it.
