Sanctuary

I found myself walking local paths, seeking solace from the pain of bereavement. From a loss that had left my relationship with nature fractured and bruised. My partner walks beside me, our unspoken thoughts colliding like tectonic plates.

Heavy steps lead us down sinuous paths to the woodlands and we become immersed in the undergrowth, in the shady spinneys and thickets. A sanctuary of sorts. Far off sunlight draws us on, always just out of reach beyond the latticework of leaves and tangle of branches.

Photographed mostly on paths and in woodlands on Dartmoor in Devon and on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. Shot entirely using the Hipstamatic app on an Iphone.

Wallpaper featuring images from Bamboo (Six Seconds)

The Terre Verte Gallery in Altarnun, Cornwall  is showing pieces from three of my projects as part of a three photographer exhibition entitled ‘The Practice of the Wild’. Named after the seminal 1990 book of essays by Gary Snyder – one of the central texts on wilderness and the interaction of nature and culture – all three photographers interpret the theme in their individual ways.

I will be showing a wallpaper collage (above) of four images from my project ‘Bamboo (Six Seconds)’. The single roll of Photo Tex is 64 inches wide by 57 inches high. There will also be four framed silver gelatin limited edition prints from ‘Huangshan Ltd’, six framed prints from ‘The Sixth Extinction’ and two prints from the series ‘Sound of Jura’.

The exhibition will run from 20th September until 15th October and I will be giving a talk on my work and, with the other photographers, will be leading group photography walks locally.

Exhibition and Private View, Kendal Mountain Film Festival

The Warehouse Gallery in Kendal, Cumbria, is pleased to announce an exhibition by award-winning photographer Jon Wyatt. As part of the renowned Kendal Mountain Film Festival, he will be showing editioned prints from his series entitled ‘Naked’.

Photographed in mountain ranges across Europe, Greenland and North America, the prints feature isolated figures in dramatic, winter mountain landscapes. They are alone, exposed and vulnerable (ie naked) in these extreme and primal environments.

The images stand as a howl for the preservation of these ecosystems, and have received honours in both the Prix de la Photographie, Paris and IPA Awards.

You are invited to a private view on Friday 30th October and the exhibition will run until Sunday 22nd November.

The whole series can be viewed at www.jonwyatt.co.uk/portfolio

Awards from Prix de la Photographie, ParisAwards from Prix de la Photographie, Paris

A series of five images from my ‘Naked’ series has been awarded third place in the Nature (Earth) category of the 2009 PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris awards and will feature in their annual book. The first image in the series also received an ‘honorable mention’. ‘Naked’ is a series of images which feature solitary figures in vast mountain landscapes. So that’s ‘naked’ in the sense of being exposed and vulnerable rather than the literal sense!
