Anachronism ‘The representation of a person or thing as if existing in other than chronological, proper or historical order.’ This series of images aims to explore the historical and contemporary relationship between painting and photography. Inspired by the paintings of Rembrandt and other old masters, Steven Barritt wanted to emulate their atmosphere and sentiment, taking advantage of photography’s ability to render exceptional clarity, definition and subtleties of colour. The images were styled to give a noble and dignified appearance to the sitters and generate an ambiguity of time. www.stevenbarritt.com
