Broadscape | King’s House, Brighton Photo Fringe
Broadscape brought together four artists, Clare Hankinson, Claire Kennard, Willie Robb and Heidi Kuisma, all concerned with the spaces around us. The photographic work was accompanied by reflections on the exhibition from writer Iris Veysey.
The photographs pulled the eye into unfamiliar and hidden areas of the environment. The exhibition invited audiences to consider how photography, through process and presentation, throw light on to our connection with our surroundings.
The work was exhibited at Brighton Photo Fringe 2016, a city-wide open-access festival of photography.
My photographs close in on branches and leaves. As the background is reduced to an ambient blur of soft light, the delicate images remove flora and fauna from their context. The digital images, shot using an original Lensbaby lens, were taken as a response to Icelandic neoclassical composer, Ólafur Arnalds’ album, Found Songs.
