When Sherry drove through the American West he liked to have Brian Eno on his headphones and when he paused he liked to have the poems of Walt Whitman close at hand. Sherry is, in a word, a romantic – though, he hastens to add, “an extremely forward thinking one!” One of his romantic attachments is to analogue photography. (Sherry stresses that he has nothing against digital picture-making – it just isn’t for him.) But it isn’t nostalgia that drives his attachment to the medium of colour film. He simply believes that there is still “territory left untravelled” along that route, and he intends to explore it.
