May Exhibition Part Two - Uncommon Landscapes by Joe Cornish
Event/Launch Dates: 1st May 2015 - 30th May 2015
Over the last few years I have had the huge privilege of travelling widely and the sights I have seen and photographed reflect that travel. To me all of the earth’s environments have a deep significance, and are full of clues as to their recent history. While the aesthetic and technical considerations of photography dominate my thoughts in the moments of the picture-making process, the landscape itself brings its own narrative to the print. Every place has its own unique story, hence the title of the show.
I find printing my images extremely satisfying but it can be a time-consuming process that involves a great deal of patience and endeavor. This serves to maintain my focus on what I find most important in my own photography and ensures that I only print the ones I really care about. Some images cry out to be printed and for this exhibition that has been my overwhelming consideration
It would be nice to say that there is a common characteristic in these images. There isn’t. Some are literal and descriptive, some are atmospheric and evocative while others are fragmented abstractions. Photography is maddeningly elusive, and in my own work I try to keep an open mind to the possibilities, however diverse the selection may be. Mostly I am indulging in seeing for its own sake, exploring long-explored notions of composition and light in an effort to define my own ‘vision’.
