“My current photographic obsession is inspired by traditional, old boats. This has swept me into an exhibition of photos of such boats and also seascapes, lighthouses and water reflections. My search for historic vessels took me to the canals of Europe, to photograph the gondolas of Venice and century old canal barges of Amsterdam. ” Gary Steer, 2016
