Selected for University of Exeter Open Exhibition – ‘Observatory: Perspectives on Landscape, Society and Spirit’

Nash Point Lighthouse, South Wales. From the series 'The Sixth Extinction'.

Nash Point Lighthouse, South Wales. From the series ‘The Sixth Extinction’.

The above print has been selected for the University of Exeter Open Exhibition. Subtitled ‘Observatory: Perspectives on Landscape, Society and Spirit’ the exhibition called for artists to link their submission with research undertaken at The University. This image of the lighthouse at Nash Point, South Wales is from my project ‘The Sixth Extinction’ and responds to research into mass extinction events by the Earth System Science Group at Exeter.

‘The Sixth Extinction’ tracks a group of world-leading paleogeologists as they hunt for clues to a mass extinction event in the cliffs of North Somerset and South Wales. This image of Nash Point lighthouse (the observatory) shows the ‘extinction line’ at waist height in the cliffs – a rarely exposed inch-thick layer of limestone below which fossils are abundant but above which 75% of the planet’s species vanish. The lighthouse looks not only out over the lethal cliffs and reefs but also back through layers of deep time.

The exhibition runs in the Exeter Forum at the University from June 11 – 18.

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.

The jetstream over the North Atlantic controls the direction of pressure systems and hence the UK's weather. Atmospheric cooling due to the melting icecaps has altered the position of the jetstream leading to marked changes to weather patterns with increased storm intensity, flooding and more frequent extreme weather events.

Port Talbot steelworks & Kenfig Dunes, South Wales. The sand dunes here were once part of the largest dune system in Europe, the shifting sand supporting many species. However with the dunes now overstabilised and overgrown with marram grass, many of those species have become extinct.


Two prints from my ‘Sixth Extinction’ series are being shown at the New York Hall of Science, NY, as part of the Art & Science Collaboration’s exhibition called  ‘Biodiversity/Extinction’. The exhibition runs from 10th October 2015  to 28th February 2016.

Jon Wyatt

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

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 Pye

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.

AOP Gallery - Summer Exhibition

Answering a call for images with a ‘summer’ theme – not something immediately inherent in most of my work – the image above was selected for the AOP Gallery’s  Summer Exhibition which is to be held at the AOP Gallery in Shoreditch, London. The Private View is on July 29th with the exhibition running to August 11th. The show features a diverse selection of work from notable photographers such as Simon Norfolk and Tim Hetherington.
