Songlines by Linda Lashford - Exhibition Preview & Talk
Linda Lashford is a photographic artist and a traveller, who has spent the last 10 years journeying ceaselessly through western Europe. Inspired by her travels and by poetry and poetic prose Linda’s exhibition ‘Songlines’ portrays an intersection between a moment, words and a place. The images in ‘Songlines’ comprise lyrical and haunting portraits of abandoned buildings, woodland, rivers and shoreline. The exhibition is themed in three groups; ‘Intimations of landscape’, ‘The splintered coast’ and ‘Trappings of light’. Although varied in subject matter the exhibition is unified by its valuing the power of the imagination and of abstraction.
Linda Lashford is a Welsh born photographic artist, who abandoned a career as a physician and medical scientist to take up a wandering life. For over a decade Linda has created walking holidays and marketing content for the UK travel company, Inntravel. In recent years, she has been heavily involved in supporting Inntravel’s ‘Slow Travel’ campaign, and has created and published many evocative images of places and people. The exhibition ‘Songlines’ is Linda’s personal response to the landscapes she has encountered along the way. You can see more of Linda’s work at www.lindalashford.photoshelter.com
The travelling life is the wellspring of her creativity and provides the impetus for her broad range of imagery; Linda is equally at home with documentary imaging and is currently working on a long term project documenting the rural people of Spain and Portugal.
