About the Book
With SEASIDE PORTFOLIO: BOURNEMOUTH TO DARTMOUTH, Michael Hallett challenges the concept of image making with the iconographic imagery he calls the ‘photo construction’. It was a sense of extreme frustration that led to his intellectual pursuit of how to extend the boundaries of time and space that a single exposure, single viewpoint photograph was unable to offer. The visual solution provides an innovative cutting edge to the new media technologies.
Michael Hallett is a professional image maker and internationally published cultural historian. He is a Research Fellow in the Centre for Fine Art Research (CFAR) at Birmingham City University, and he is currently an Associate Academic in the Institute of Humanities & Creative Arts, University of Worcester, UK.
