Fergus Heron pictures the British landscape as a strangely familiar place of different natures and histories. His central concern in connection is how the ordinary world photographed as it appears becomes a picture.
He uses a view camera and available light to photograph ecological formations, infrastructure and urban environments as individual pictures, closely resembling sets and ongoing series. The working process involves equally important stages of encounter, observation, camerawork, printmaking, reflection and research.
Heron’s photographs are presented as distinct interconnected projects that together explore a range of themes from the urban and the wild to the modern and traditional. His work offers a sense of place both real and imagined and reflects on photography as a medium to concentrate our seeing.
