Malcolm Glover

I am an established photographic artist, whose work has been published and exhibited both internationally and throughout the U.K. 

My work has been purchased for public and private collections.

As a photographer, my work has three main strands: documentary photography, digital work creating panoramic timescapes and video installations.

The first two strands of work have encompassed diverse communities and subjects across the UK and internationally.

Recently, I have been portraying 25 streets across Britain, photographed at 45-minute intervals throughout the day from 8am to 7pm, the separate shots being knitted together on a computer to create a single image of the entire street, like a cinematic tracking shot.

Recent video projects include an Arts Council funded obliquely autobiographical piece, 'Congregation', which featured footage of Catholic worshippers in Ireland and England and was the subject of a feature on BBC South East when first shown at the Lucy Bell Gallery in Hastings; and a recent British Council funded commission working with Welsh Arts Ambassador, Chris Bird-Jones, to make video portraits of glass workers in India (2017).

In 2018 I was funded by the Arts Council of England to create a video installation piece ‘Groynes 41 – 42’, a collection of video portraits featuring people of all ages, shapes and sizes shot on two areas of beach at St Leonards on Sea.

In the portraits sitters pose for the camera for 30 seconds against the background sound of the beach at that moment.

 

These ‘living breathing photographs’ were shown as projections and TV screenings in two town centre locations as part of the Coastal Currents festival in Hastings
