Paul Gorman

Paul Gorman Avatar‘My practice revolves around the exploration of human vision through photography, looking at themes such as perception, phenomenology, light, objects, and nature’s way of healing and nourishing man. I use Photography as a way of representing these ideas and use multiple exposures to suggest how new perceptions merge with existing ones. Through these theories about perception, vision and light the work explores; how the build up of knowledge through the senses can create a more accustomed account of the relationship we have to the external world. My work is deeply associated with themes of a more photographic nature, experimenting with techniques that are inherent within the medium, incorporating many of the techniques that allow a photograph to transpire. And the way we are drawn to photographs as close representations of the real world, and their evidently transparent effect. By incorporating all these different effects my images challenge what we know about the world through vision, which consequently constructs a challenging and stimulating impression on the viewer.’
