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 Sixth Extinction’ series has been selected to be showcased on a video screen in the Elysium Gallery, Swansea as part of the ESPY awards.
‘The Sixth Extinction’ project is featured this week in the ‘Another Place’ contemporary photography magazine on tumblr – here. The project concerns ecosystem transition and is loosely based around the investigations of a group of scientists into a 200 million year old mystery – a mass extinction event which wiped out around 80% of all life on earth.
My work was recently highlighted in this special anniversary four book set celebrating 10 years of Magenta Flash Forward.
