Tim Knight: Seeing the World as the Camera Sees It

In his photographs, Tim Knight focuses on the textures and patterns of the world around him, turning landscapes and interiors into personal visions. “I want to show the essence of the places I love and the depth of my own feeling for them,” he says, and his pictures achieve that goal through a sharp eye for detail and a painterly, expressive use of light and color. There is often a dreamy, otherworldly quality to his pictures, giving each locale a life of its own, and the viewer is presented with striking motifs within the simplest objects.

Knight shoots his images on film, which gives them a powerful sense of presence. In particular, the glowing light in many of his photographs makes the most of film’s properties. The artist also says that shooting on film makes him rethink the world as he records it. “To make the final photograph work,” he says, “I have to try to see the world as the film sees it.” That process results in works that are both carefully thought through and reflect the vividness and immediacy of the scenes they depict.

About the Exhibition

Illumination: an Exhibition of Fine Art Photography presents the striking, stunning and unforgettable images crafted by talented contemporary fine art photographers. These artists use a range of methods to achieve their effects, with some embracing digital technology and its possibilities, and others preferring to remain loyal to the richness of more traditional methods. Each artist puts great thought and care into composing each aspect of their image, without compromising a sense of spontaneity and openness to their surroundings. The result is enormously appealing and often entirely immersive, as if the viewer is being offered an entry into a world which is encapsulated in the magic of the image before them.
