One of the problems all towns, cities and rural areas have at them moment is that building and development, although a great thing, can also be a problem for local people, even local creative people as it can seem sometimes as if it’s all gone too corporate, everything is bland and the same. This is true locally, regionally, nationally and internationally and it’s a signal to people to find new routes to express themselves and their unique response to the local environment. We need a rich culture……… The art of photography is in the detail: new ways of seeing: Martyn Williams Photography
One thought on “The art of photography is in the detail: new ways of seeing: Martyn Williams Photography”
Martyn Williams grew up in Nottingham and has spent the last thirty years (when not working in a senior finance role for Nottingham City council!) , walking across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and playing in various blues and jazz bands. His approach to photography is really to think of it as a painting and I think when you look at his Trent studies, for example, you really feel a sense of stillness and calm that you feel when you walk, cycle and jog along the Trent but it’s very hard to communicate.
