This piece works well in any environment as the black background sets a neutral foundations off of which the boats stand out.
For a moment we are left wondering what we're looking at but soon see that they are fishing boats, pitched against a void, with the boats now seeming almost like stars against a night sky. The colours of the boats really brings the piece to life and gives these isolated features some character.
About the Artist:
Tim Hall is a British Fine Art Photographer, who specialises in travel, landscape and portraiture. His drive to see the world through the lens of a camera was inspired by the romance of 19th century travellers and more recently, national geographic photographers. The work is a lyrical response to the people and places that he has visited and shows his deep interest in the urban and natural world as well as the people who inhabit them.
The influence of painting in his work stems from his studies of Art History at Manchester University. The intention to strike an emotional or spiritual chord is evident in much of his landscape work, which is inspired by Rothko and Turner.
With over twenty years experience as a project-based photographer, his works are often conceived as a series, exhibited as a collective body or bought as single pieces. Tim lives in London and is represented by contemporary art galleries across Europe, South East Asia and the USA.
