Far Too Lovely To Return


  • Image of Far Too Lovely To Return

'Far Too Lovely To Return' is a hand-made artist book of images by Philip J Brittan that explores the art of perception and suggestion. Predominantly the result of darkroom adventures with chemicals and film, the images of landscapes, surfaces, buildings, and the human figure float between abstraction and representation. Beautifully printed the photographs rely more on evocation and atmosphere, and the use of tonal contrasts, rather than literal or narrative detail, to evoke mood and feeling.
