Christopher Bucklow and Simone Douglas: Sun to Sun
Light, nature and the sun form the centrepiece of this photographic exhibition.
In the non-stop rush of our lives, it's incredibly easy to focus on the here and the now. It would be overly simple to say that the solution is to disappear off the grid for a while. But perhaps there are other ways to reconnect with nature.
World-renowned artists Christopher Bucklow and Simone Douglas — who have previously worked internationally across museums including Tate and MoMa — have come up with an alternative. Their first collaborative photographic exhibition, Sun to Sun, is on one level a celebration of man's relationship with nature and the universe. It can also be taken as Bucklow's and Douglas' love letter to photography: for them, the modern medium of light.
Bucklow's ethereal silhouettes are taken through pinhole (or 'camera-less') photography, of which he's a pioneer. Douglas, meanwhile, creates abstract conceptions of light, combining them with her evocative portraits of nature. Get a little elemental with them during this exhibition.
