The work of Fergus Heron involves interrelated explorations of commonplace landscapes and architecture.

 

His principal artistic concern is making pictures of ordinarily encountered places that form connections between the urban, rural, modern and traditional, acknowledging landscape conventions and documentary histories.

 

The working process involves on-going projects consisting of single photographs and closely resembling pairs or sequences of each subject. A view camera is used with only available light to make consistently structured and highly detailed photographs with an intensified stillness and extended sense of time.

 

All works emphasise photography as a medium and technology through which to decelerate and distil our seeing.
