Jan Eric Visser

‘‘I have been transforming my everyday inorganic garbage items into autonomous works of art since 1987. Thus I have been exploring an ecologically driven aesthetics respectful of earth’s resources and the cycle of nature and life. Aspiring for an artistic reconciliation between concept, matter and activism my art practice challenges our contemporary understanding of matter and existence. My work may be seen as a unique personal footprint, raising notions of consummation and transience, enigma and exigency, art and life.’’

Molly Tucker

Combining her deep passion for geology and environmental issues, such as climate change and pollution, Tucker explores the tactility of cameraless photograms created in the landscape under direct sunlight on silver gelatin paper. As the photographic medium utilizes minerals and ores from the Earth, she embraces this cyclic nature of mining for silvers in the paper and changing their chemical composition once submerged into different toning baths. This process of mining for silvers has resonated deeply with Tucker as a conversation between her photography work and field investigations of geological & chemical changes to the environment. Primarily operating through alternative processes and cameraless photography, Tucker’s practice also includes lens based photography and post-photographic digital treatment of images.

Britt Walker

''My work explores the relationship between humans and nature; by combining the two I hope to demonstrate the devastating effects that we are having on the environment. For this series I focused on climate change and used recycled materials to create pieces to signify rising sea levels, melting ice caps and coral bleaching. Each work includes a human hand to symbolize how our actions impact the environment. My aim is to raise awareness of the importance of looking after our planet. I hope to inspire people to think about their connection with the environment, as well as their actions.’’

Séverine Bonacchi

‘‘My name is Séverine Bonacchi. I use both analog and digital photography, and sometimes collage, as a powerful tool for self-knowledge and self-acceptance, in order to find my own « why ». My process is mostly intuitive. I shoot because there is something I want to keep : a light, a gesture, an emotion, a texture, a shape, a line. It is often afterwards that I find some convergence and start to dig that way, willing to offer the viewer both a time of contemplation and an opportunity to make his/her own connections.’’

Diane Burko

Diane Burko is a visual artist whose art focuses on monumental geological phenomena. To that end, she has investigated location on the ground, underwater and in the air from open-door helicopters and planes with cameras, drones and sketchpads. Traveling from the temperate zones of America to Western Europe, from rain forests to glaciers, from active volcanoes and to coral reefs below the equator, her art merges a vision that is at once panoramic, intimate and sometimes provocative.

Emma Stevenson

Emma Stevenson is a London based photographic artist who uses predominately analogue techniques. Her work mainly consists of landscapes which often draw on personal experiences. Through documentation of subtle observations, she persuades viewers to see compositions in a different light.

Katie Silver - Human x Nature: Water II

This is a new series by Katie Silver: Human X Nature. Focusing on each of the elements, it was written with a mind to highlight the emotive links between mental health and nature, and how our feelings can both be influenced by and reflected in our environment. In each of the poems Katie aims to bring a feeling of hope and positivity alongside direct honesty. Her poetry is an act of release, whilst at the same time aiming to positively uplift others in the spirit of the way she believes the outdoors positively influences humans, and their own natures.

Marc Haldemann

The photographic series Beyond Structures was shot during my trips in Iceland and the USA. The photographs show timeless excerpts from landscapes that seem to be detached from their actual location. In the abstraction they receive their very own aesthetic. The taken photographs are about silence and solitude as well as respect and reverence for nature.

Katie Silver

Katie has always had a strong affinity with nature and the outdoors. She studied geography at Newcastle University where she wrote a dissertation about organic farming in South Africa, whilst living on two farms in the Western Cape. The impact of place attachment and environmental identity upon sustainable behaviours had rarely been touched upon in previous research, but is an area she has always had a great interest in. This is Katie's first poem. It was inspired by Hampstead Heath, where she grew up - and conclusively refers to as her favourite place in London. She hopes that it will demonstrate her own attachment to it.
