Gallery Talk: In Conversation with Paul Hart

28 June 2024

Join us for a gallery talk in conversation with Paul Hart, the photographer behind our current exhibition Truncated and Lisa Gee, Director of the Harley Foundation.

Paul Hart has photographed the natural world for over 35 years. For the works displayed in this exhibition, Paul photographed the same pine forest in Derbyshire intensively for a three-year period using large and medium format film cameras.

What inspires these long-term landscape projects? How does he develop and print his photographs? Come along to see these atmospheric tree portraits and learn more about Paul’s inspiration and processes.

Paul Hart

Paul Hart is a British landscape photographer, living in Lincolnshire. He graduated with a BA Hons in photography from Nottingham Trent University in 1988. Hart works exclusively with black and white analogue processes, processing and printing all work by hand in his darkroom.

Hart has published several monographs including: Truncated (2009), Farmed (2016), Drained (2018), Reclaimed (2020) and Fragile (2024). His work has been exhibited internationally and he was awarded the inaugural Wolf Suschitzky Photography Prize (UK) by the Austrian Cultural Forum, London.

“In my work I’ve always tried to convey the physical beauty of trees, but also highlight the neglect and decline of this essential life form in the face of the modern world. – Paul Hart
