An exploration of the balance between the perfect and the flawed inspired by walking the River Thames north of Wallingford in early 2020.
In homage to the woodblock prints of Utagawa Hiroshige, I have chosen to print fifteen selected images on Awagami washi paper and exhibit them minimally.
John Hailstone is based in Oxfordshire and specialises in fine art, commissioned and event photography with a particular focus on nature and live music. His creative approach comes from his origins in film photography and that of Ansel Adams in terms of observation, visualisation and realisation. In order to give him full control of the creative process he began digital giclée printing back in 1998. He has been featured in Amateur Photographer and has exhibited extensively in Berkshire and Oxfordshire, including ‘WOOD’, 'blue’, 'exo earth', 'WOOD LIGHT', 'The Web', ‘Willows of Wallingford’, ‘SPECTRA’ and ‘2020’.
