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.

From the series ‘Bamboo (Six Seconds)
I’ve recently returned from 2 weeks on the Isle of Jura in the Scottish Inner Hebrides. Many thanks to Jane and Hugh who looked after us so well, their idyllic cottage providing stunning views of the Paps – ‘mountains’ rising to 785m at their highest point.
The island’s relatively small but boggy interior and remote nature (two ferries from the Scottish mainland) combined with extraordinary light, meant I found myself drawn to the views over the Sound of Jura. These are the straits separating the island from the Scottish mainland, which, draped in ethereal light, are known intriguingly in Gaelic as ‘An Linne Rosach’ – ‘The Sound of Disappointment’. The full series is now up on my portfolio website.
