    #73 - with Jill Welham (Cyanotypes)

    #73 - with Jill Welham (Cyanotypes)

    In this episode Paul chats with Jill Welham; a printmaker, photographer and artist. Jill won the prestigious ‘International Garden Photographer of the Year’ competition in 2019 with a cyanotype image. Jill creates unique prints using wet cyanotype, a modified version of the 19th century photographic printing process, introducing moisture onto the treated paper before exposure. The chemical reaction produces interesting fluid patterns and colours not normally present in a traditional cyanotype print. 
    The resulting pieces are unique and present botanical prints in a different and painterly manner. Each piece is created with plants and flowers exposed using only the North Yorkshire sun.

    Bonus Episode - Sir Don McCullin 'Stillness of Life' Exhibition

    Bonus Episode - Sir Don McCullin 'Stillness of Life' Exhibition

    In this short bonus episode Sam and Paul visit the Sir Don McCullin 'Stillness of Life' Exhibition in Somerset. Held at Hauser & Wirth venue in Bruton, Somerset - this exhibition features over 60 images of various landscapes.
    Sam and Paul discuss their first impressions and how they reacted to and engaged with the images upon first viewing.
    Check out more info here: https://www.hauserwirth.com/hauser-wirth-exhibitions/26511-don-mccullinthe-stillness-life
    TEXT FROM THE GALLERY (Hauser & Wirth):
    "Regarded as one of the most accomplished war photographers of recent times, McCullin has spent the last six decades travelling to remote locations and witnessing harrowing scenes of conflict and destruction. Often referring to the British countryside as his greatest salvation, McCullin demonstrates the full mastery of his medium with stark black and white images resonating with human emotion. This personal survey depicts scenes from across the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia, revealing McCullin’s innermost feelings through powerful compositions of wild heavens, haunting vistas and meditative still lifes.
    Having been evacuated to the safety of Somerset during the Blitz, McCullin has had a lifelong connection with the open farmland and hill country of the South West, feeling at peace within the solitude of the expansive landscape. The largest body of work featured in the exhibition explores local areas within walking distance of the photographer’s home, including ‘The River Alham near my house, Somerset’ (2007), ‘The Dew Pond, Somerset’ (1988) and ‘Batcombe Vale’ (1992-93). McCullin is able to evoke dramatic painterly representations of his home county with quiet confidence, shifting between the flooded lowlands of the Somerset levels to woodland streams, nearby monuments and historic hill forts."

    #72 - with Magnus Lindbom (Landscape)

    #72 - with Magnus Lindbom (Landscape)

    Magnus Lindbom is a Swedish landscape photographer with a passion for the Mountains. His outdoor photography pursuits often see him spending days & weeks in tents exploring far off the beaten track, in search of a deeper connection with the landscape.
    We chat to Magnus about his early life as a Mountain Ranger in Sweden, how his passion developed for photography and some of the practicalities of camping alone in a Swedish winter, 3 days hike from civilisation. We also consider what makes an image special to the creator and viewer and how we can develop our photography to share & experience deeper connections with the landscape.
    Mountains & Beyond is his new project where he documents his travels and images, in an attempt to inspire others. Through his photographs Magnus aims to take you along on his journey as he explores these wild places, the changing seasons and the fleeting moments of light. 
    Check out more of his work at magnuslindbom.com

    We're back! We kick off 2020 with Jack Lowe; a photographer, sound recordist and creator of The Lifeboat Station Project, an 8 year art project taking him to all 238 RNLI lifeboat stations on the coast of the UK and Ireland. He photographs and interviews the lifeboat volunteers he meets along the way but there’s a twist!
    Travelling in his mobile darkroom — a decommissioned ambulance called ’Neena’ — Jack uses Victorian photographic techniques to hand-make the images on glass. Paul chats with Jack about his inspiration, the importance of persistence, the value of photography and much more...
