Wall Border -2

Growing up surrounded by the desolate beauty of the Yorkshire landscape Bryony developed her work to explore the romanticised nostalgia and uncanny brutality landscapes can evoke.

For the past 12 years Bryony has been photographically exploring psychogeography of landscape. Working experimentally with photography as a tool to explore the land and the stories woven within it.

Currently Bryony is working on a body of work alongside writer Sofia Smith exploring folklore in the north. Landscapes of folkloric interest are represented through photography and  poetry exploring centuries old tales of coiners, witches, outlaws and ghosts haunting the corners of woodland and expanses of moors. Traces of history and imagination which have shaped the land, the people and the place.

Jim Stephenson is an architectural photographer and film maker and the founder of The Miniclick Photography Talks. In 2013 Stephenson purchased a letter on eBay from a British reporter present at the launch of Space Shuttle Columbia at Kennedy Space Centre in Florida in 1981. The letter, written to the reporters’ young nieces, conveys the anticipation and excitement of those present about to watch astronauts Truly and Engle make their journey into space and it culminates with the words “FLY HIGH BIG BIRD!”.

Stephenson will be introducing his new project as it exists at its very beginnings, a collage series based on this letter, made up of archive NASA images.
