Landscapes, portraits of his daughter, still lifes, in black and white or in colour, small and large formats... Jefferson Hayman explores the photographic medium in its entirety! Although contemporary, these photographs seem very old: the subject matter, the dull colours and the grain of the handmade silver gelatin and platinum prints give them a vintage look. Captured with delicacy, they seem timeless. Perhaps the most unique aspect of Jefferson Hayman's work is the framing he chooses. A real part of his work, they are rare and original frames, some of them very old. The images magnified by these sublime frames make us feel all the poetry and beauty of simple everyday moments. This is a recurring theme for Jefferson Hayman who likes to illustrate nostalgia, common symbols and memory.
