Tim Parkin at OnLandscape.co.uk interviewed me recently - the resulting article can be seen here. On Landscape is a UK based bi-weekly magazine dedicated to landscape photography.
The Huangshan Ltd project has been featured on the Lenscratch blog here.
I’ve recently returned from the Photolucida review event in Portland, Oregon where I met with several (mainly west coast) gallerists and curators. More on the outcomes of those meetings in future posts! Meantime I’m happy to announce that I’ve been selected (for the second year running) as one of the winners of the Magenta Foundation’s 2013 Flash Forward Competition for emerging photographers.
My ‘Avalanche UK’ project was selected by Sara Knelman (Talks Programmer, Photographers Gallery) and Rebecca McClelland (Group Photography Editor and Creative Director of the Ian Parry Scholarship).
The work will be published in the Magenta Foundation catalogue and feature in Flash Forward Festival events in Toronto, before touring to various venues.
Two images from my ‘Naked’ (2009) series are being released as limited editions prints by Canadian online gallery Eye Buy Art (www.eyebuyart.com). Editions are available in several different sizes from 14 x 11 inches to 40 x 30 inches. The images available are ‘Ste-Foy-Tarentaise, France 2009′ and ‘Glacier d’Argentiere, Chamonix, France. 2009′. Eye Buy Art aim to encourage the collection of limited edition art by offering affordably priced editions.
This image from my ‘Avalanche UK’ series has been selected for the AMPS Salon at the Photofusion Gallery in London. The triptych is intended to be printed at 3 metres total width but due to lack of gallery wallspace I will be showing a half-size version. The private view is on 6th December at 6.30pm with the exhibition continuing until 18th January.
The Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward 2012 exhibition is opening shortly at the Regent Park Arts and Cultural Centre in Toronto, Canada. The private view is on the 14th November at 7pm with the exhibition continuing until 20th November. I’m showing the image below from the Huangshan Ltd series.
I was recently invited to contribute to Gallery Stock, a rights-managed licensing agency (or image library to you and me) based in New York and London. The company represents some amazing photographers - Stephen Shore, Joel Meyerowitz, Mitch Epstein etc etc - and around 100 of my images will shortly be going live with them.
I have recently returned from two trips shooting editorial commissions. The first was in Alaska where I spent the best part of a month in and around the Chugach Mountains in what turned out to be a record-breaking snowfall year. The second trip was to the Lyngen Alps in northern Norway, around 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle. Based on a yacht exploring the fjords northwest of Tromso, the ‘land of the midnight sun’ kept its promise, delivering nearly 24 hours of daylight. Click here or on the image above to see some more images from both trips - the link will open my facebook page.

I’ve been selected as one of the winners of the Magenta Foundation’s 2012 Flash Forward Competition for emerging photographers.
My ‘Huangshan Ltd’ project was selected by Diane Smyth (British Journal of Photography), Stefanie Braun (Photographers’ Gallery) & Francesca Sears (Panos Pictures).

I was recently interviewed by Conor Risch, editor of respected US-based photography magazine PDN (Photo District News). The interview is published in the March 2012 issue of the magazine.

An award-winning landscape photographer, Jon’s work has been published and exhibited in the UK and Europe, and is represented by the Diemar/Noble Gallery in London.
“Our continued disconnection from the physical landscape provides the framework for all my work. Various techniques are utilised to recreate this detachment through the imagery, exploring the dynamics and ethics of land ownership, preservation and visual wonder. And how, ironically, our lack of connection may be the last best hope for the preservation of ecosystems.”
Luminance features work from the series ‘Sound of Jura’ (2010). This is the name given to the straits separating the Isle of Jura in the Inner Hebrides from the Scottish mainland. The Gaelic name is ‘An Linne Rosach’ meaning the ‘Sound of Disappointment’.
Judith Lyons is a photographic artist. A graduate of both Central Saint Martin’s School of Art and Design and the London College of Communication, for the last four years Judith has worked predominantly with camera-less methods of photographic image production. Her work has been exhibited in institutions and galleries both nationally and internationally and has been featured in books and journals.
“Using traditional analogue and contemporary digital photographic processes, Judith Lyons’ work demonstrates an engagement with the natural world and with the perpetual cycle of birth, growth, decay, death and rebirth”.
Luminance features work from two series, ’A Different Nature’ (2009) and ‘Un/Natural Forms’ (2010).
Wendy is a commercial photographer, photography lecturer and photographic artist. She graduated from The M.A in Photographic Arts at The London College of Communication, London in 2009. Wendy’s work over the last four years has been responding to the well-known natural beauty and suicide spot, Beachy Head on the South England coast. Her work has been exhibited internationally and featured in press and journals.
“A common strand running through my work is in an interest in exploring the cyclical nature of states of being, particularly those that bridge, or represents something on the cusp of change.”
Luminance features work from the series titled ’Luminance in Flux’ (2010), which uses light interventions to respond to the sentiment embedded in the landscape.
