Fergus Heron pictures places of different natures and histories. His central concern in connection is how the ordinary world photographed as it appears becomes a picture, acknowledging and unsettling landscape conventions.

Working consistently with a view camera, film and available light, he photographs ecological formations, infrastructure and urban environments in ongoing series and as individual pictures made as colour prints. The working process involves encounter, observation, camerawork, printmaking, reflection and research.

Heron’s photographs are presented as 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.
