    'Flatford @ Fullmoon' shows Willy Lott's cottage in Flatford, Suffolk, immortalised in John Constable's paintings, including 'The Hay Wain' (National Gallery, London). Darren Almond's contemporary interpretation of Constable's work was created by photographing the same scene during a full moon using a long exposure. The technique allowed him to present a scene undetectable by the human eye: only the camera lens can expose such a dream-like quality of illumination captured at night.
