Text by Francis Hodgson

Paul Hart is a photographer interested in the slow harvesting of hidden truth from the ordinary places that most of us pass by. He works in an unfashionable idiom with slow cumbrous equipment (not just old-fashioned analogue photography, but medium format analogue photography, slower still) in an unfashionable place. He seeks to find the bits of the land that speak their stories, and to transmit their importance in views which, typically, the absolute lack of melodrama demands slow looking and brings slow revelation. Hart’s placid, formally peaceful landscape is pregnant with stories that lurk in the mud or the mist. His magic lies in soliciting from his viewers the same half historical, half romantic reaction to ploughed fields and straight drainage ditches as he gets from them himself.
— From the essay 'Picturing the Polder' by Francis Hodgson

POETRY OF PLACE | PAUL HART'S LANDSCAPES

18 January - 18 February 2018

 

Paul Hart has spent over a decade exploring human relationships with the land through photographs devoid of people.

His recent exhibition at The Photographers' Gallery (London) brought together his three related series to date;

each one concentrating on a precise geographical region photographed intensively over a number of years.

"Masterfully shot and printed landscape photographs pose important questions about our relationship to the earth and silently ask of us - 'What's next?'."

FARMED REVIEWED IN LENSWORK

 Book review and 6 page feature in LensWork No. 128 February 2017 

Book review and 6 page feature in LensWork No. 128 February 2017 

"We first published Paul Hart's work in LensWork Extended 85 from his book and project titled Truncated. This new book continues his exploration of the landscape, this time a completely different one. Turning his attention to landscapes under cultivation, he creates aesthetically pleasing and visually rewarding images in a quiet classic style. His images remind one of those great FSA photographers of the 1930s." Brooks Jensen
