Alex Hare Photography

Field Notes

If Turner were alive today I am convined he would paint and photograph. The camera woud be an exciting tool for him to use in interpreting the landscape and I think, gven his style, he would enjoy long exposure and multiple exposure photography for the way it allows a scene to be intepreted with wide creative freedom. Turner often painted ships in his work, using them not just for scale but also for meaning. Nature (depcted through vast seas and skies) often towers over and surges under his ships making them small and fragile. With this boat, it's abandonment, it's decay ad the pathos of a no longer cared for creation seemed fiting for this project as it lies at rest in this lonley extremity of the British Isles.
