THE FLAT CAPPED PHOTOGRAPHER

HONEST PHOTOGRAPHY FROM YORKSHIRE

A project that questions how we interpret the present because of photography.

 

In his role as a photography tutor, the Flat Capped Photographer has noticed that many of us will place an emphasis on getting a good shot rather than appreciating our subject for what it is. We tend to hold onto the resulting photograph rather than the event itself.

 

In 'A Moment In Time,' The Flat Capped Photographer takes photographs of rare natural events, printing them and deleting the original digital file. He then places the prints out in the landscape, open to the elements. The prints eventually erode into an unrecognisable mess of ink and paper, leaving only the memory of the event as a record of it ever happening.
