WHERENESS: THE LANDSCAPE OF UNCERTAINTY | Chris Younger

“The photograph belongs to that class of laminated objects whose two leaves cannot be separated without destroying them both: the windowpane and the landscape, and why not: Good and Evil, desire and its object; dualities we can conceive but not perceive... Whatever it...

CHORA & TERRAIN VAGUE | Matthew Conduit

  I have photographed the landscape around my home in Sheffield for over 35 years. A long time ago I arrived at photography through painting and drawing and a fascination for the act of mark making. My images are made within my own immediate environment and until...

WESTERN EDGE | Anne Giddings

  For me photography is a form of research: a kind of contemporary archaeological investigation into myself, the world I find myself in and the entanglement between them. I photograph everyday places in which I find a feeling of resonance, or a disorientation and...

COMHARRADH | Lynda Laird

  This work is from a series I made called Comharradh - an audio-visual project which is the result of a sustained engagement with the peat bogs and moorlands of the Isle of Lewis. At heart, it is an ode to the moor; to its component parts, peat, water, sea, and...

HISTORY LESSENS | Tom Wilkinson

  I made this body of work as a response to questions about history and landscape and where and how my own sensibilities and opinions align. The British Isles has a wonderfully rich and robust history: myths and stories that tell tales of romance and desolation...

FIRST LIGHT | Melanie King

First Light: 1. the time when light first appears in the morning; dawn. 2. the first use of a telescope to take an astronomical image after it has been constructed. 3. In physical cosmology, first light refers to the light emitted from the first generation of...

MAMETZ WOOD | Rob Hudson

“And so to midnight...”     Welcome to Mametz Wood. This isn't the actual wood. Nor is it July 1916, the date of the First World War battle of that name that claimed thousands of lives in a futile fight for just one square mile of woodland in northern...

SURFACE INTERVENTION | Mandy Williams

My recent landscapes and photographs of the built environment share an underlying narrative about human interaction or presence and the psychology of a particular place will always lead me to research and initiate a project. The beauty of a landscape isn’t something...

SEAWORKS | Paul Kenny

  "Seaworks" is a term I use to define an ongoing body of work made on or about shorelines.  The work, building on themes developed over 45 years, seeks to find the awe inspiring in that which is easily passed by and by looking at the micro, how we might gain...

ALONE | Mike Colechin

  Over the last few years my photographic practice has become part of the way I make sense of life - an important creative outlet, which has also become a way of exploring the emotional connections I make with the world around me. As a fairly cerebral character I...

ULTERIOR SHIFT | Stephen Segasby

      Landscape, a space we enter and a place we leave. Regardless of original intent the landscape has a changing effect upon us. This may be a learned response to aesthetic beauty or alternatively ugliness, but it is often much more, something...

CONVERGENCE | Valda Bailey

My first visit to Dubai was almost 25 years ago and came about as a consequence of an ill-considered trip to the Maldives. It very quickly became apparent that neither myself, nor my then future husband were the type of people who could happily roost on an island...
