LONDON.- Eleven presents From the Road Again featuring Rob Carter, Harry Cory Wright, Gerry Fox, Rick Giles, Jonathan Glynn-Smith, Jane Hilton, Dede Johnston, Peter Newman and David Yarrow. The exhibition highlights each artists unique perspective of the environments which inspire them.

From natural phenomenon to towering urban structures, the photographs featured convey a strong sense of location. Carefully considering their environments, these artists vividly capture an experience of being in a place. Their personal and evocative relationship with the space around them is articulated, revealing atmospheres from wonderment or adventure to solitude and isolation.

The artists employ diverse photographic techniques to capture the landscapes they discover. Newman adapts a vintage wide angle lens to fit his high-tech digital camera whereas Fox gently blurs the boundaries between photography and video delicately bringing a landscape to life. Equally, Cory Wright utilises a large format camera to precisely capture the fine details of a place where conversely Carter allows the exposure from a rotating lens to deconstruct the landscape, reducing the image to threads of colour and light. Glynn-Smith and Hilton immerse themselves into documentary studies of landscape resulting in an intimate portrayal of culture as well as setting.

This exhibition reflects the endless potential presented by a landscape to an artist. Here these possibilities are represented by a clear environmental awareness, expressed through a combination of the epic prospective as well as carefully observed minutia offered by a scene.

Rob Carter’s photograph from his Travelling Still series reduces the landscape to essential hues. Creating movement from stillness, he employs a revolving lens camera which he moves to repeatedly take the same image. This process results in the elongated fibres of light and colour epitomising the setting.

Harry Cory Wright explores and celebrates the beauty and subtleties of the landscape. The vivid and immaculate nature of these large format works convey a real sense of 'being there'. These photographs are first-hand accounts of landscapes to which we are all witness.

Gerry Fox creates a slow moving video work from a new Cory Wright landscape photograph. At first appearing to be a Cory Wright still, Fox employs cutting edge technology to digitally manipulate Cory Wright’s image subtly bringing it to life.

Rick Giles examines man’s relationship and explores our imprint on the landscape. He considers the physical and atmospheric changes transpiring in the environment. A fire tearing across the arid land serves as a significant indicator of the transforming climate.

Jonathan Glynn-Smith’s photographs are taken from his recent travels and conveys the vastness of landscape in conjunction with cultural elements hinting at each location. He has been photographing men and women’s fashion for the past fifteen years and also directs TV and printed advertising campaigns.

Jane Hilton’s photographs from her Dead Eagle Trail series capture the wide-open spaces and expansive skies of cowboy country in Western areas of the United States. She documents their lifestyle where the landscape is at the core.

Dede Johnston observes our relationship with the alpine environment. These works exemplify the dichotomy between the Romantic, more solitary approach to nature to a much less visionary and completely social experience.

Peter Newman’s work from his Metropoly series encapsulates a view of looking upwards in the City of London. The photograph provides a unique vantage point capturing a renowned skyline where immense architecture and the natural world compete for attention in an ever evolving urban landscape.

David Yarrow’s images are the culmination of traveling to some of the world’s most remote locations revealing the splendour of the landscape and wildlife which reside in it. Yarrow visually invites the viewer along with him whether he is exploring untouched corners of the planet or getting close up to a cold snow monkey in Japan
