Harry Cory Wright
Harry Cory Wright explores our fundamental attraction to place, and the very physical process of being in landscape. The vivid and immaculate nature of these large format photographs convey a real sense of ‘being there’.
He often spends several days in each location, becoming engrossed in the natural world around him, familiarising himself with the light, atmosphere, and selecting the perfect vantage point. He draws on Eugène Atget’s matter of fact approach with keen attention to the ambiance of a place and the unique spirit of the location. In a digital age where photographic imagery is widely disseminated and easily captured, he applies a methodical approach using his large and cumbersome view camera. The slow process, restriction of one exposure per scene and meticulous hand printing charge the final work with a sense of hard fought serenity and calm.
