TITLE : ORDINARY WORLD
SERIES
AUTHOR : COLIN TEMPLETON

 

Colin Templeton shows us  brutalist infrastructures around Glasgow.

The careful and natural use of light makes us enter the frame, making us feel the place.

An outstanding documentary work that does not renounce careful aesthetics as a narrative element.

“I’ve worked as a press photographer for close to 30 years. It’s been a job I love, but I also like to get out and take pictures for myself, with no time pressure, or brief to fulfill.

Since the COVID pandemic, I’ve found myself increasingly drawn to photograph the brutalist infrastructure around my home city of Glasgow. Especially the tower blocks, which are fast disappearing.

I’m interested in the nature and quality of light, and the way it plays around the fabric of the city.

I think photography has the power to suggest to the viewer how it might feel to be in a certain place.

I’m trying to gently show rather than tell.”
