Paul Chambers: Catching Light & Time
Artists have long been captivated by Moulin Huet, since the light has a particular quality. Renoir felt challenged by the emergence of photography: whilst the Impressionists were at the cutting edge of painting, this novel medium was making an impact on the art world. Renoir was sure, however, that one thing that photographers could not capture was the movement of the light. Local photographer Paul Chambers, armed with photographic equipment that would have been available in the 19th century, took up the challenge of achieving what Renoir thought to be impossible. We are excited to share with you the results of his journey.
