In addition, the winning and commended entries from the ‘My Sussex’ Photography Competition will be on display. For the competition, we invited photographers to capture an aspect of Sussex life or landscape that is particularly special to them.We had an excellent response to the competition and there will be some terrific photographs on display - showing Sussex at its best.
There will be a special preview night on Thursday 16th September when the three competition prize winners will be announced and the other featured photographers will be in attendance.
Exhibiting: Sussex Photographs: Living Landscapes (2009-Present)
Andrew will be exhibiting a number of prints from his ongoing 'Living Landscapes' series.
These images take a sensitive look at maintained and nurtured landscapes within the county of Sussex. By looking at the land itself, the people that enjoy it and the work of those that help preserve it for future generations we can build a picture of just how important the landscape is to our well-being and why we should all respect it.
Exhibiting: A selection of Sussex based landscapes
James enjoys photographing landscapes and wildlife. His photographs have superb precision and technical accuracy, from composition to processing technique. He says, "I consider myself to be an informed observer. The camera is the best tool I have found so far to describe the visual experiences that most excite me".
Exhibiting: In Memory Of...
Wendy will be showing her series 'In Memory Of...', photographed along the Beachy Head coastline, a popular location for suicide, she documents the floral memorials from day through to night, exploring notions of memory, loss and death. The photographs are truly beautiful and touching.
Simon says, "As a photographer I'm most interested in the intimate landscape. Much landscape photography is fixated by the grand vista, the horizon and beyond. The smaller spaces just a few steps a way often go unregarded. Much of my photography explores these spaces which, being more personal in scale, facilitate a more intimate interaction."www.simoncourcha.com
Exhibiting: St Leonards 'Matchbox' Panoramic images
Lucy Phillips show us panoramic images taken on St Leonards seafront with a matchbox pinhole camera. Lucy says, "I am an artist/photographer based in St Leonards. I am currently interested in exploring the experimental and collaborative possibilities offered by pinhole photography. I work with a homemade camera constructed from a matchbox, a simple, unobtrusive piece of technology which provokes curiosity and encourages revelation. As well as the panoramic piece I am exhibiting at this festival, I am currently engaged in a long term postal photography project, also using matchbox cameras, in which I invite people to photograph ‘what cannot be seen’."
