Noel Myles

Widely established photographer Noel Myles is one of the artists exhibiting in our Summer Exhibition here at i2 Art Gallery. Throughout his work there is a persistent aim to extend the still photographic image beyond the single moment and the static viewpoint. The intention is to evoke the perception of accumulated experience. His photographs establish a form of depiction that refers to moving film and single-frame photography but which is independent of both.

“The prints in this exhibition are all PALLADIUM PRINTS. Palladium along with platinum and gold comprise the Noble Metals. I make light-sensitive salts with Palladium and coat artist’s pure cotton paper by hand. The negatives are then exposed in contact with the paper to make the image. Each individual rectangle in these pictures corresponds to a complete (uncut) negative. Many dozens of negatives are sorted before the final image is composed. They can be taken over the period of several weeks.”

 “I want to liberate my still photographs from the static viewpoint and the single moment. They do not record a fixed position in time or space. They are composed in the studio not in the camera. I hope they encourage prolonged contemplation that moving film does not provide and that these accumulated compositions present and extended sends of experience in a still image that a single-frame photograph does not achieve.”

Myles’s pictures have been shown in solo and mixed exhibitions that include the V&A Museum, National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, National Portrait Gallery, Contemporary Art Society, Royal College of Art, Royal Academy of Art, Royal Photographic Society and the Serpentine Gallery. Noel has been Artist-in-Residence for Rowe and Maw, Shaftesbury PLC and ITN.

“I had one print exhibited for a year in the V&A’s History of Photography display. During the past 2 years, my pictures have been shown in the Art Fairs in New York, London and Amsterdam.”

Tony Worobiec

Morning Bloggers! In our LandMarks exhibition, Tony Worobiec is our featured photographer.

Tony Worobiec studied fine art at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne and spent 18 years as head of a large design faculty in Dorset. He has won awards for photography in the UK and internationally, and has had work exhibited in London’s Barbican Gallery, Bradford’s National Museum of Photography and The Fox Talbot Museum Lacock. He is a founder member and current chairman of the prestigious Arena Group of Photographers.

A passionate traveller, Tony (together with his wife Eva,) has made frequent visits to the USA, documenting the depopulating areas of western Nebraska, North and South Dakota and south-eastern Montana. The culmination of this work has been the much celebrated book “Ghosts in the Wilderness; Abandoned America” (published by AAPPL,) which shows numerous haunting images of deserted communities and homesteads, a graphic illustration of the American dream backfiring in a hostile land.

Tony is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and was a member of that society’s Distinctions Panel for Visual Arts. He is a fine art photographer with work in the permanent collection of The Royal, The Fox Talbot Museum and in numerous private collections here in the UK, in Europe, Japan and in The States.
