Miniclick in London / Thurs 17th Oct

We’re coming to London! In a month punctuated with trips away from out seaside base (we’re also going to Leeds on October 2nd), we’re linking up with Anise Gallery in Shad Thames (5 mins from London Bridge station) to put on a panel discussion on contemporary landscape photography to coincide with a exhibition of Marc Wilson’s “The Last Stand” project.

Thursday October 17th, 7pm (doors at 6:30pm). Free Entry at Anise Gallery.

The panel will be talking about how landscape photography has changes, and the constant fascination with this sub genre. We’ve got some great, varied, photographers lined up as well…

Marc WIlson

Sainte-Marguerite-sur-mer, Upper Normandy, France. 2012

Working in the genre of documentary landscape photography, Marc Wilson focuses on subjects that involve human interaction with the surrounding landscape.

Marc has exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions, both in the UK and in internationally in Milan, Grenoble and New York. Exhibitions include The Terry O’Neill Award, 2013, The Royal Armouries Museum in Portsmouth and Leeds, the inaugural solo shows at the Back Hill and Now Showing galleries (London); a solo show at Focal Point gallery, Southend and group shows at Art 2001, Photo2005, The Photographers Gallery, The Association of Photographers gallery and Lucy Bell Fine Art.

His current work, The Last Stand, photographed between 2010 and 2013 and currently made up of 43 images, aims to reflect the histories, stories and memories of military conflict. He is documenting some of the physical remnants of the Second World War on the coastlines of the British Isles and northern Europe, focusing on military defence structures that remain and their place in the shifting landscape that surrounds them.
