In this issue, Guy Tal tackles one of the most contentious themes in photography, the truth of the image. In one corner the stalwart purist celebrates the level playing field that the constraints of the lens and film impose and in the other, the fine artist touts the freedom of using the photograph as a catalyst for creativity. Like all arguments that seem binary in nature, it is actually a lot more complex. It’s sort of like Brexit (A UK based insanity) - you’re either a remainer or a leaver supposedly, but in reality, these two external labels hide the real issues. We’ll be coming back to this theme in the future with a few photographers putting forward their opinions. Only by dissecting the argument will we find out what the real issues are but I applaud Guy Tal for starting the ball rolling with an erudite look at his philosophy.

In other news, we’ve just confirmed that our conference will be filmed in 4K and we’ll be using a state of the art 4K projector at the conference itself. High resolution monitors are rapidly becoming the norm and we look forward to sharing how this translates into the projected image. Learn more about the conference at onlandscape.co.uk/conference.

End Frame: Convergence, Iceland by Rafael Rojas

There is just enough space between the receding wave which mirrors the cliff exactly and the cliff to draw you through to explore the rest of the picture but always pulls you back to that point to start again..... Genius. more

I wanted to connect with the landscape or whatever was in front of me in more of a raw emotional way, and that seemed to lead me into more abstract areas. more

An insight into handbound books

Handbound artist books now represent most of my photographic output. I think I am confident their legacy will be longer for my heirs than any of my stored boxes of prints. more

Morality and Realism in Photography

To a photographic artist, the insistence on dogmatic adherence to the tenets of photojournalism is especially confounding. There is no reason to judge a photograph not intended to serve an evidentiary purpose based on the very thing it is not meant to be. more

Why I am a Tourist

I am currently doing research into why photographers (and other tourists) find human constructions to be attractive focal points in remote and otherwise “natural” environments. In particular derelict structures appear to be favoured. more

Romania Project Diary

When I discovered that I’d been awarded the Royal Photographic Society Environmental Bursary to create a new series – a series that I’d been wanting to create for some time more

The Confident Artist

Creating a body of work that is original and consistent with vision or voice (or whatever you call it) is the most difficult challenge facing any photographer. more
