Peter Knight - Polaroids

20 March - 29 May 2015

Inspired by the freedom and speed of digital photography, but wanting to make something object-based, the Polaroid process satisfied this objective, plus much more.

Drawn to natural and urban landscapes, the photographing of architecture encompasses history, human endeavour and achievement.

Quite often the pictures are devoid of people but the architecture speaks of a human presence.  Polaroids (especially negatives that can be produced from some Polaroid film) have a timeless quality - nuances of a historical photographic process which allows the subject to be looked at minus the trappings and associations of a particular point in history, which can enhance one's focus on the actual content.
