“Photography is about exploration – nothing has taught me more about the world and myself, spending hours walking alone, dissecting the reasoning behind it.” Ian Howorth is Brighton-based, covering a wide range of subject matters and styles, from cinematic to street documentation. The images, captured through analogue film, revel in the authenticity of opportunity, spontaneity and chance, flowing past characters and locations. Presenting the works as series is to understand the artist’s process for selection and composition; he searches for landscapes that translate the emotion of cinema, transitioning from one scene to the next, revelling in the control of exposure and timing. The featured works slip between indoor and outdoor settings through a subtle persuasion of colour – gradient sunsets, neon signs, brake lights and table lamps cast a diffused glow across the film. Howorth’s photo-book, Arcadia, is available from Setanta Books. ihoworth.com | setantabooks.com/book_author/ian-howorth.
