One half of highly acclaimed husband and wife team, Rob and Nick Carter, Travelling Still, is Rob’s award-winning solo project. Begun in 2005, the work is a series of beautiful, unusual and, in many cases, almost completely abstract landscapes. The images, appearing as if taken from a moving car, are all about creating the feeling of movement within a still image and try to represent the experience of travelling itself. The images stretch the ‘moment’ both literally – in that the camera shutter is held open – and visually, as the details of the subject blur out horizontally. All the images are shot using a revolving-lens camera. The movement is created ‘in camera’ on to film, with no digital intervention – and are subsequently printed directly from the original transparency onto Cibachrome paper. The series has won highly prestigious awards from The Royal Photographic Society, Creative Review and the International Colour Awards Photography Masters Cup. More recently, Rob has been commissioned to create a Travelling Still film for the offices of Land Securities and a large scale photographic installation for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Prints are produced in limited editions of 12 and prices start at £850 (excl. VAT) for a framed print. To see more of Rob’s work, go to the Photographers section.
