West of the Sun
“But what is there, west of the sun?” I asked. She shook her head again. “I don’t know. Maybe nothing. Or maybe something.”
These two lines from Haruki Murakami’s 1992 novel, South of the Border, West of the Sun, gave birth to a concept that has come to represent my landscape photography and the way in which I work.
In ‘West of the Sun’, I had found a perfect description of a state of mind into which I try to enter when I work. As if forever seeking that “perfect” image, found just over the horizon and to the West of the Sun.
Toby has been taking black and white photographs since 1989, always using an old Nikkormat and the same 24mm lens he ‘borrowed’ from his father over twenty years ago.
His images are never cropped, but are framed instinctively at the time of taking.
Toby has an ability to depict the world that goes beyond the literal representation that we have come to expect from photography. His landscapes are suggestive of myths, with something beyond their four corners, challenging the viewer to see the world, and the medium, in a different way.
All silver gelatin prints made carefully in the darkroom and are available to purchase. They are in editions of twenty and will be printed to order by the photographer.
3 April - 10 May 2014
Private View: Thursday 3 April 6 - 8pm
The work on exhibition here is a selection from “TREEWORKS” - a long-running evolving theme that changes and takes new directions over time.
The theme embraces the characters of trees, their environments, seasons and changing appearance in different weather conditions and at different times of day and night. With these changes the same tree can look majestic and statuesque or vulnerable and damaged.
The prints are all traditionally wet-processed Black and White silver gelatin prints and silver gelatin Lith prints, hand crafted in the darkroom to the highest archival standards and toned with combinations of sepia, selenium and gold toners for increased archival protection and for aesthetic purposes.
To attend the Private View, please RSVP here: www.timrudmantreeworks.eventbrite.co.uk
Please bear in mind the gallery will be closed on the 5th of April an 10th of May during the Toning Workshop.
