Garry Fabian Miller : Sea Horizons
In 1976, at the age of 19, Garry Fabian Miller began the series Sections of England: The Sea Horizon. It consists of forty photographs taken from a fixed point on the roof of his home in Clevedon, overlooking the waters of Severn Estuary.
Garry Fabian Miller : Abstract
Garry Fabian Miller’s increasing interest in light and time led him to abandon the camera in 1984 and to focus exclusively on making camera-less photographs. Miller’s abstract images are created in the darkroom where he passes the light from the enlarger through translucent objects, coloured glass or liquids onto the light-sensitive paper.
Doug & Mike Starn
Doug and Mike Starn (b.1961) are collaborative American artists and identical twins. First having received international attention at the 1987 Whitney Biennial, for more than 20 years the Starns were primarily known for working conceptually with photography, and are concerned largely with chaos, interconnection, and interdependence.
Malick Sidibé was born in 1935, in a small village in Mali. He bought his first camera in 1956, and in 1958 he opened his studio in Bagadadji, in the heart of Bamako. Starting with studio portraits, he soon after moved into street photography and focused on documenting the youth culture of Mali’s capital in the wake of its independence.
Nadezda Nikolova-Kratzer is a photographic artist working with wet plate collodion photograms – a historical technique dating back to the 1850s which uses light-sensitive salts to cover a glass plate before exposing it to the light in a portable darkroom. Captivated by the fluidity of this technique, she further manipulates the medium while simultaneously courting chance intrinsic to handmade photography.
Since 2008, Oli Kellett has dedicated himself to exploring the urban setting and our relationship with the crossroad. For his series Cross Road Blues, he travelled through America to transform the everyday into spectacular beauty.
