Head and shoulders 
above the horizon, 
he looks for the future. 

A watch on his wrist, 
he listens for the future, 
hoping to hear it 

tick into sight.

Neil Hulme
Issue 3, May 2020

is a self-taught, fine art photographer based in the North West of England, where he often gives talks and workshops at photography clubs. He has been a precision engineer by trade for 38 years and took up photography 10 years ago. His main focus is black-and-white minimalist long-exposure photography. Taking a simplistic approach to his images, Neil focuses on the minimal components in a composition, be it a lone tree or a jetty or a simple post in water. Through the use of various Lee filters, his long exposures flatten out the water, and can create an other-worldly scene from the everyday.
