Photograph (1978). Ravilious manages to capture the ordinary moment, yet there is nothing commonplace or dull in his photographs. Ravilious instinctively knows that when people are in front of a camera they can tend towards the posed. But such was the trust he inspired in the people he photographed that his subjects find no need for preparation or preening. The moment captured is never overly prepared or arranged, cliché is avoided, and the ‘ordinariness’ becomes something more – the exploration of a unique instant.
