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.

Levi Mandel

Levi Mandel’s sensibility is one that follows true throughout his body of work––there’s no time for the typical. By applying his ethos as a portrait photographer to his travel stories, he introduces emotion into static landscape, capturing surreality within the ordinary. His unconventional aesthetic is a seductive one and reflects through his commercial and editorial work, capturing the unexpected beauty of the strange juxtapositions found in unaltered life.

Pennacchio Argentato

"Peace is a fire" it's the first solo show of Pennacchio Argentato at Acappella Gallery in Naples. Producing a new set of works, the Artists Duo respond to a moment of extraordinary global changes and converging crisis, such as economical, ecological and humanitarian issues, with the construction of new sculptures where images and texts are overlapping, producing unsettling results. The epoxy resin sculptures have been produced by enlarging and fragmenting pictures of glaciers taken from Istockphoto, that have then been manually rendered 3D as physical objects, with their own body, volume, dimensions and weight. The flat images of the glacier take a new body shape, as a rebirth of the photographical image into the new sculptural avatar.

David Ellingsen

David Ellingsen is a Canadian photographer and conservation artist creating images of site-specific installations, landscapes and object studies that speak to the natural world and Man’s impact upon it. Using a hybrid of traditional documentary processes and staged constructions Ellingsen acts as both archivist and surrealist as he calls attention to the state of the environment. His photographs are marked by simplicity, empathy and a wounded sense of nature’s fate in the Anthropocene. Ellingsen’s photographs are part of the permanent collections of the Chinese Museum of Photography, South Korea's Datz Museum of Art and Vancouver's Beaty Biodiversity Museum and have been shortlisted for Photolucida's Critical Mass Book Award, awarded First Place at the Prix de la Photographie Paris and First Place at the International Photography Awards in Los Angeles. Ellingsen lives and makes his work in Canada’s Pacific Northwest, moving between Victoria, Vancouver and the remote island of Cortes where he was raised.

Natasha Burbury

Natasha Burbury a Sydney based fine artist influenced by the trends of the 1960’s and 70s where psychotropic drugs took hold and contemporary art threatened to uncover all that was wrong within the world. Classing herself as a hallucinatory symbolic artist. Where she conjures up strange worlds that share her deepest questions about herself and how this is connected her to the natural landscape. 

Laura Beloff & Jonas Jørgensen

The Condition - We, humans, have been able to easily divide things into artefacts, things that are produced by humans, and biological organisms, organisms that are evolved or grown ‘naturally’. However, today we are in degreasing degree able to make a distinction between artificial and natural things based on our cognitive abilities. This is due to our long-term development in plant and animal cultivation, cloning, genetic manipulation and biotechnological methods. Also, at the same time we are developing new avenues for artificial life and artificial intelligence to evolve on different platforms and materials. It seems to me that the future ecologies on our planet will be forming at the intersection of technological and biological evolution and human agency.

Ebyan Rezgui

My name is Ebyan Rezgui and I’m a German-Tunisian photographer born and based in London. I’ve spent the last 8 months travelling and shooting for my current project in between my responsibilities for university. My work is documentary in nature but avoids any strong social and political agendas. I prefer to make photographs that give the viewer a feeling of the subject and allow them to draw their own conclusions. However, I also don’t believe that photographs can be wholly objective- my work is rooted in the way I see and my love for the natural world. I am drawn to subjects that take me out into the world and force me to question my understanding of it

Courtney King

Anna Hahoutoff

Although I was born the other side of Atlantic ocean, my heritage was tinted with the power of American imagery. My eyes bathing in commercials, movies, and everything else that life was at the time, bathing in various pieces of a puzzle called the American dream.  Soon I realized everything had a visual appeal, it all seemed arranged in such proficient order, as if it were standing still for me - only waiting for a photograph to be taken. 

Amy Johnson

Melt :: A collection of porcelain salt cellars - Glaciers and their icebergs are transformative; they take you to an unknown world in an unknown time. To hear them drip, shift, and crack is loud, startling, and real. I am sucked into the seemingly fairytale environment, where endless spans of blue ice seduce with their glistening surfaces and sapphire pools. To be there, on a glacier, among the icebergs, and to navigate the frozen braided rivers connecting them, is nothing less than surreal.

Curro Rodriguez

Debla - The fear, the strange and the uncomfortable to be animal and feel excluded from the purely natural, feel like an intruder in the plots that man has intervened and nature has resumed. Debla attributes to the recreated spaces an insane unrest. A rarefied environment. A crack that leaves the atavistic, simple and uncomfortable. A cycle, a natural struggle to recover an invaded space. Landscape, body, interaction, intervention, are the ways of searching used, walking as artistic practice and intrusion in space as a way to find the answers.

Juan Fabuel

Juan Fabuel's 'Becoming Exergy' project looks at the idea of social construction when looking at landscapes. It displays the need for balance between a system and its context by turning some apparently invisible aspects into visible ones. Juan explains how the images do not intend to untangle how hidden mechanisms, which facilitate inter-connectivity or equilibrium between elements; work. 

Sophie Steengracht

The patterns discover in my physical environment captivate me. I see movement and textures in all life around me. I find them in the sky, on the forest floor, but also in a pavement or in shadows that fall through a window. They seem quick, soft, liquid, ethereal, solid, intertwining, falling, growing, creeping, scattering, evolving and dying. Everything is disintegrating to be born again in another form.
