Inside the Outside: Exploring CONTEMPORARY Landscape Photography.
22nd April to 3rd June 2017, MMX Gallery, London.
In a new exhibition curated my our collective Inside the Outside I'll be exhibiting alongside members Joseph Wright, Stephen Segasby and Al Brydon, along wth invited work by Valda Bailey, Jacqui Booth, Alex Boyd, John Blakemoor, Mike Colechin and Dan Wood.
I'll be showing images from my series about poet John Clare's 1841 walk from Epping Forest to Helpston to in the Fens - North Towards the Orison.
"The exhibition uses landscape photography as a metaphor to unite coexisting ideas and reflections that are exposed in another light to the photographer and viewer. Not strictly about the physicality of the landscape but how it is shaped and revealed."
"Each artist work is diverse in technique, style, method and process; yet they share a similar approach and understanding that is ‘beyond the visual’, that a photograph should speak of something more than the photographic process itself. Emphasising the difference between a photograph of something and a photograph about something. Being in the landscape and representing the landscape is to simultaneously inhabit two worlds, the one before us and the one inside us."
