Approaching a concept through photography can be flawed with a lack of execution or a failure to decipher towards some kind of point. Manchester-based Jonathan Flanders avoids these mistakes through his careful application of thoroughly researched subject matters and skill of capturing the precise sense of occasion that his work takes on. Flanders suggests that there is a midpoint between a staged and natural exposure that gives the ideal moment and setting to capture. Speaking to Flanders, it is clear he prefers to let his imagery immerse within itself rather than to interfere too much. Although this may be the case, it's perhaps a subconcious reaction that the filmmaker inside him sets the scene and we see the end product of his work becoming somewhat cinematic.
