TRUNCATED (2005-2008) is an intensive portrayal of an ageing pine forest plantation in Derbyshire, England.The series identifies a landscape where nature finds shelter and protection from its own elemental chaos. It explores the natural spirituality of the place, which is largely unaffected by the modern world. Hart’s narrative is further enhanced by his use of traditional darkroom printing techniques.
The series is comprised of 37 photographs made by Hart as silver gelatin prints.
TRUNCATED was published by Dewi Lewis in 2009
with an essay by Gerry Badger and is now out of print.
The series has won a number of international awards
and the book is held in the V&A Museum National Art Library Collection.
