Landscape photographers David Ward and Joe Cornish first met four decades ago. The friendship, and friendly rivalry, which sprung up at that time remains as strong as ever. David and Joe continue to work together, admire and critique each other’s photographs, teach, discuss and write about photography.


This warm and inspirational photographic relationship is the catalyst for this autumn's exhibition. Very familiar with each other’s oeuvre both photographers have selected work from a combined pool of image choices. David and Joe’s working philosophy regarding this exhibition was to choose photographs which reinforce and confound expectations; images have been chosen in pairs to show correspondences of form, colour, composition and theme. However, despite each photographer having a reputation for a particular style in the landscape photographer genre, David and Joe were keen to exhibit photographs which do not conform to this trend: the exhibition includes landscape vista photographs by David Ward and intimate landscape details by Joe Cornish. The final image selection includes both recently made photographs and a few old favourites.
