Upcoming photography exhibition: Of People and Places

I’ve slightly and slowly been abandoning this blog, as I’ve taken a few months to focus on my own practice as an artist and curator, and less so on my writing. For the sake of publicity and a post, here’s some information on a group photography exhibition which I’ve curated, opening next week. Come along to the private view for drinks etc.!

Oxford House Gallery is delighted to present its upcoming exhibition, Of People and Places.

This exhibition brings together the work of ten selected photographers from across the world to open up a reflection on the relationship between people and landscape.

Of People and Places explores both the ways in which society’s impact visually manifests itself on the landscape, and the ways in which the land can be of significant influence to individuals, communities and – more specifically – to artists. From the Israeli countryside, across the vast expanse of the Alaskan tundra, through Italy’s suburbia and into the woodlands of Southwest England, Of People and Places takes a look at how we relate to the environment around us, whether it’s by taking in an individual’s experience of particular landscape, or reflecting on the ways in which communities find an identity in specific surroundings.

Each of the series presented in the exhibition draws inspiration from themes such as historical change, intimate memories, sociopolitical issues or questions about identity. By exhibiting established photographers alongside emerging artists, the exhibition aims to offer a multifaceted view of a wide-ranging subject.
