Divination: the modern-day Pagan

Jack Pidduck recalls a particular holiday with his parents, driving along a mountain road in north Wales, overlooking a deep valley below. He remembers how the light caught the slopes and bounced off the folds. They pulled over on a lay-by to look out over the blanket of clouds and watch the gleaming tufts shift. “I asked my mother if I could borrow her 8-megapixel point-and-shoot to snap a few pictures – it was an amazing camera at the time. I was so proud of how they came out. I remember loving the feeling of seeing something beautiful and being able to capture it and share it with others. I spent the rest of the holiday taking photographs and haven’t really put a camera down since.” He was 14 at the time and remembers the moment vividly – the way the camera felt in his hands, its ability to capture a moment in time. Now 22, the Nottingham Trent University graduate has shown his final-year project, Divination, in the Nottingham Trent graduate portfolio exhibit, Emerge, which formed part …

5 Photographers To Keep An Eye On At St. Andrews’ Photography Festival

While St. Andrews is known to be university of top-notch academics and a home to golf, it also holds an exquisite history of photography. In fact, Scotland has produced a large number of photographers, who’s work has transcended international borders. This autumn, the university is hosting their first annual, six-week long photography festival, which will celebrate the local heritage and its legacy in Scottish photography. Starting August 1st, 19 different exhibitions will display images across the history of photography; ranging from rare historic images, to contemporary snapshots. All work will be displayed in local and unusual venues. According to BJP, here are the five exhibitions you can’t miss: Alicia Bruce Paintings and sculptures, which can be found in Scottish collections, are reinterpreted through Alicia Bruce’s lens. The award-winning photographer’s ongoing and controversial project, Meine: TRUMPED, captures the destruction of the Menie-estate landscapes, following Trump International’s announcement of the Trump Resort. Bruce collaborated with locals living on the Aberdeenshire coast (where Menie is located), to create a series of landscape photography that documents the transitions of the area into …

The Forgotten Photographs of Some of Britain’s Best Conceptual Artists

Tony Morgan left London at the age of 22 to embark on a month-long walk to Rome, a walk which he later referred to as his “first performance”. The most famous of these, The Book of Exercises, 1971, will be exhibited for the first time in its entirety: encompassing 49 pages of typewritten text and 21 black and white photographs. The photography book attempts a “taxonomy of activities”, recounting Morgan’s engagement with the community he found on the way. The photographer John Blake, like Morgan, used the landscape and his movement within it to explore ideas on perspective. His series Untitled (M Panorama) 1968/69, a pair of photographic panoramas, takes as its subject the Vale of the White Horse in Uffington, Oxfordshire, which changes size and shape as Blake changes his own vantage point on the site. Blake begins to more literally change physical shape with the 11- part work Skin II (1969/70), where we see folds of flesh being pinched and pulled in large- format photos that exaggerate his proportions. Exhibited at the Victoria …
