Beautiful Solitude by Mark Forbes is a featured exhibition in this year’s Head On Photo Festival.

Haunting and uncannily well timed, this body of work, captures the subtle idiosyncrasies of everyday life.

“Traces of beauty exist everywhere around us. Sometimes we just need the time and space - physical and emotional - to be able to pause to experience them.” - Mark Forbes

Best known for his considered and atmospheric photography of street scenes, Mark Forbes’ approach to photography comes from an underlying fascination with people and their interaction with the environment.

Mark Forbes has always enjoyed spending time photographing on the streets, watching the ebb and flow of daily life. Until recently, a lot of his work featured people and the busyness of life. Forbes’ aim for the Beautiful Solitude series was to focus more on the environments that humans engage with and live in. He found that the more time you spend appreciating the whole scene, the more you are able to understand its intricate details and find beauty in the ordinary. Mark Forbes has preferred shooting personal work on film for a number of years, finding this an integral part of his creative photographic work. He believes that it forces the photographer to slow down and visualise the final image - resulting in more engagement with the process and thus more satisfaction in the result.
