“Observations of the everyday and just some of what might be implied”. 

John Heseltine is a photographer and writer living in the Charente Maritime in southwest France. The story of how I ended up here is just beginning to be told here

I have worked as a commercial and editorial photographer in London for over thirty years but now devote my time to personal photographic projects. My first book, “Roads to Rome” was published by the Getty Museum in 2005 and in his Foreword, the eminent curator Colin Ford wrote, “Heseltine’s beautiful black and white shadows of the distant and recent past powerfully summon up the great Roman roads of Italy, the material with which they were built, and the mean and women who have used them – and continue to do so. In these pictures, ghosts really do come to life.” In contrast, much of my recent work is set in France and examines the abstract and symbolic nature of our immediate interior space, how our domestic worlds define and mirror our inner selves while also hinting at the complexity of the wider world.
