About A Glass Eye and Three Wooden Legs

 Stephen Hall

My fascination with urban night & low light photography is part of a continually evolving relationship with the landscape and the depiction of such through the camera. I am primarily a landscape photographer and I see streetscapes, buildings and modified environments as another aspect of the landscape. I seek to explore the world around me and depict the moods it inspires through my camera.

I use Black & White film and a large format (5"x4") camera to get the highest quality images possible. Large format photography requires a slow contemplative approach to image capture which best suits my attitude towards the landscape. My night-time photographs may have exposure times of an hour or more.

I consider myself a print maker as much as a photographer and the digital inkjet process has, for me, opened up a whole new level of precision in the craft of image making. I am currently experimenting with the Gum - Bichromate printmaking process.

I worked in the photographic industry for 15 years before returning to university to study Geographic Science. I have exhibited in exhibitions in Adelaide, Cairns, Toowoomba, Natimuk and Cygnet. My work has been published in Wild Magazine, Australian Conservation Foundation & Wilderness Society Calendars and Diaries.

My first solo exhibition 'Peripheral - Images of Regional Victoria' was shown at The Goat Gallery in Natimuk in December 2011 to great success. Contact me if you would like to see the Peripheral Gallery Page.

I am currently living in Tumut, NSW
