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.
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 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.

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!
Here’s the official PX3 press release:-
