October 2012 | in_our_nature
University of Wales, Newport MA & MFA Documentary Photography Show
Opening Thursday 11 October, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Continues 12 – 14 October, 11 – 5
The title of the show ‘in_our_nature’ is ambiguous. In one reading, it suggests an engagement with site and indeed a wide range of landscapes appear in the images – from California to Herefordshire, from Paris to St David’s. But there are also works which consider ‘human nature’ – our own place within the environment. And underlying it all is an engagement with the nature of photography and of photographic seeing. A questioning indeed of what documentary is.
The artists in the exhibition are: Kerry Bannen, Lorna Evans, Carey Gough, Amy Grubb, Gillian Kalisky, Ann James, Shane Lynam, Alison Tanner and Christina Williams. Further examples of their work can be found at www.wearedoc.com.
