Fergus Heron pictures British landscapes as places 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, colour film 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 colour prints from interconnected projects exploring related themes of the urban and the wild and the modern and traditional. His work offers a strangely familiar sense of place and reflects on photography as a medium to concentrate seeing.
