Two rising stars in British photography, Dan Wood and Robert Darch, discuss recently published works.
Dan Wood will discuss his 2 year project ‘Gap in the Hedge’, which explores the beautiful and often intimidating landscape of the Bwlch mountain pass in South Wales. Exploring impressions people leave on the landscape, the work offers a social commentary on life in the South Wales Valleys.
Robert Darch will discuss the importance of autobiography, touching on the relationship between his photographic practice, the geography of the South West of England and himself as a photographer. Using found, constructed and documentary images within his practice, Darch will describe how he combines these elements to create a sense of place, referencing both his recent book The Moor and his ongoing project Durlescombe.
