Myles is a British photographer. He first studied fine arts. A painter
in his early days, he then turned to photography, which he believes
hasn’t been used to the full extent of its possibilities. He strongly
claims to be “a photographer – full stop”.
Noel Myles became known thanks to several exhibitions
throughout the world (England, The Netherlands, France …). He
began making huge collages, using hundreds
of colour photographs. He then discovered 19th century photographic
processes – especially cyanotypes
and platinotypes. This allowed him to explore new paths.
Landscape is one of his favourite subjects. After a walk in the country,
he comes home not only with images on film, but also with images in
his mind. In his work, he tries to reconstruct these images by assembling
negatives according to his memory. That’s why he calls them “inventions
Noel Myles also calls his works “extended
experiences”. He tries to push away the limits of photography
which sets a single view point. By accumulating negatives taken at different
times and from various angles, he tries to express as much as possible
the experience of a place or an event.
