Fergus Heron’s photography pictures ecological formations, infrastructure and urban environments. The working process involves encounter, observation, camerawork, printmaking, reflection and research. His photographs are made in ongoing series and as individual pictures with a view camera, film and available light, acknowledging and unsettling landscape conventions.
Heron’s work is presented as interconnected projects exploring related themes of the urban and the wild and the modern and traditional. His central concern is how the ordinary world photographed as it appears becomes a picture, offering a strangely familiar sense of place, and reflection on photography as a medium to concentrate seeing.
