“Textured” is the eighth Chapbook or Photozine from Simon, based on his personal photography.
This Chapbook “Textured” is A5 in size, made up of 32 pages and featuring 17 photos captured by Simon. Thoughtfully printed on quality, heavy-duty paper (more details below), only 200 will ever be printed of these limited-edition chapbooks. Each one is numbered.
From inside the back cover;
Texture is a part of every sense in your sensorium.
The International Standards Organisation specifies ISO 11036:2020, a method for developing a texture profile of food products. It covers cosmetics too. In this context, qualities such as rich, creamy, rubbery, chewy and mealy are measurable.
The nose recognises texture in scents whether perfume or whiskey. Fragrant fluids can be tight, gritty, slick or smooth and much more besides.
Musicians hear music as a melange of tempo, melody, rhythm, harmony and timbre. Those textured attributes enable a definition of both how the sounds are organised and their musical quality.
Textile weavers have long known that the surface quality and structure of their fabrics are determined by the arrangement and thickness of threads. Petrologists use texture to help classify rocks as crystalline, fragmental, aphanitic and glassy.
Texture as perceived through drawn, painted or printed media piques interest, exposes patterns and hopefully, evokes emotions.
