MMX Gallery, London / by Alex Boyd

The Peak of the Young Men, 2015

Work from the series ‘The Hebrides’ will be exhibited at the MMX Gallery in London between May - June 2017. The show will include several large prints from the series, as well as the opportunity to view original tintypes made on the Isle of Skye.

This show brings photographs into being by interpreting the environment rather than illustrating it. Using landscape photography as a metaphor to bring together simultaneous ideas and reflections that reveal themselves in another light to the photographer and viewer. Not strictly about the physicality of the landscape but how it is shaped and revealed.

Each artist work is diverse in technique, style, method and process; yet they share a similar approach and understanding that is ‘beyond the visual’ that a photograph should speak of something more than the photographic process itself. Emphasising the difference between a photograph of something and a photograph about something. Being in the landscape and representing the landscape is to simultaneously inhabit two worlds, the one before us and the one inside us.
