In this week's issue, we look at an aspect of photography that gets a lot of (probably far too much) attention. Cheryl Hamer and Glenys Garnett present multiple and long exposure work with one big difference. One takes them in camera and one combines them in Photoshop.
It’s fascinating as an exercise in the way that an approach to photography can mediate the work produced and has little relevance in terms of which is right and which is wrong. Cheryl and Glenys turn this dichotomy into a conversation instead of a confrontation.
It comes up again and again in photography. Is this or that ‘real’ photography. The answer is always either “it depends” or “just get on with it you idiot”. The more important questions are how the way you work helps or hinders your ability to produce the work you want to. That’s the heart of the matter.

When I created the images in the series, Dispatches from the collapse, hope was far from my mind. Rather, I imagined the pieces as relics found in a drawer in an abandoned house, decades from now. more
For Romain Tornay it was the stories that he read from an early age that inspired him to travel to and experience the same environments that had so fascinated him. more
Cheryl Hamer and Glenys Garnett are landscape photographers who ‘come at’ their landscapes from a slightly different perspective; here they explore both their differences and their similarities and how the march of technology continues to aid and abet their creativity. more
One day at the seaside in difficult conditions; using techniques that I knew about but had never tried in combination like this, framing abstracts rather than conventional views. more
