Paul Hart (born 20 October 1961) is a British landscape photographer.[1] His work “explores our relationship with the landscape, in both a humanistic and socio-historical sense”.[2] Hart’s work has been internationally exhibited. His books include Truncated (2009), Farmed (2016), Drained (2018) and Reclaimed (2020), all published by Dewi Lewis Publishing.[3] In 2018 he was awarded the inaugural Wolf Suschitzky Photography Prize (UK) by the Austrian Cultural Forum, London.[4]

Life and work

Hart studied art and design at Lincoln College of Art in 1984 and graduated from Nottingham Trent University|Trent Polytechnic with a BA Hons in Photography in 1988.[5] He currently lives in Lincolnshire, England.[6] He works solely with the black and white analogue process, using large format and medium format film cameras,[7] processing and printing all work in his own darkroom. Between 2005 and 2008 Hart produced a series of photographs which explored the pine forest plantations of the Lady Bower Reservoir in the Peak District National Park resulting in the series and book Truncated.[8] In 2009 he began photographing the landscape of East Anglia and made a series of photographs in The Fens.[9] This initiated a ten-year project which resulted in a three-part series on the region: Farmed (2009–2015), Drained (2016–2017) and Reclaimed (2018–2019).[10]
