Hayley Nia Thomas

Distant

“The First sentence of every novel should be: ‘Trust me, this will take time but there is order here, very faint, very human.  Meander if you want to get to town.’”

Michael Ondaatje, In the Skin of a Lion

Not all stories are epic tales with a beginning, middle and end.  Some stories aren’t loud and climatic and intense.  Some stories are quiet, and contemplative and leave off much as where they begin - glimpses of life not solved, but unfolding and changing.  This is one of those stories - a quiet and powerful tale that leaves us wistfully searching.   If the images were words they would be whispers, or a chorus of sighs.    

Distant is a wonderfully narrative-based documentary project that offers a portal into the private and personal world of a rare situation. Somewhere between a revelatory conversation and the smoky skies of an unfamiliar city, Hayley Nia Thomas found herself on a journey in which her camera was to become a vital component.   What transpires in this fog is achingly evocative and in the project we experience a journey she embarked upon, to the other side of the world with her Father - to meet the Brother she never knew she had.  The project is an emotionally (and visually) arresting piece that employs photography as a means of exploring a tentative relationship, a tool with which to bridge the triangular void between a father and a daughter and a son - fabricating the very first moments of a relationship and commenting on the theatrical rhetoric of the traditional family photography. 

As the project develops, the uncertainty that transpires in the glow of hazy lights in concrete underpasses and buildings cloaked in fog is something so sensitive in contrast.  It is difficult to determine how much of the project was artistic direction, and how much was simply subconsciously made reflecting her feelings whilst the project, and the situation unfolded – It is nice to imagine that they breathed together.

PhotoBook London 
2nd-4th September
This coming weekend HotShoe Gallery in association with PhotoBook London opens its doors for an exciting photo book fair.  The weekend will play host to a variety of stalls from well known publishers such as Aperture, to successful up-and-coming publishers such as Lay Flat and Trolley Books to a whole range of Self-Published books that were selected by a panel of judges in the months running up to the event.  There will be plenty of brilliant points of interest across the weekend including talks by publishers and photographers, a book swap and a whole host of networking opportunities.  As this is PhotoBook London’s first year, and we have our suspicions it’s going to be big, we suggest you get down to this one and get involved.  More information about the event can be found at: http://www.photobookfair.co.uk/
