Australian born photographer Grant Smith's love of the ocean and nomadic outdoor adventure influences his work. Smith has a constant urge to travel and tell stories through photography, using both film and digital.
His work has a graphic, conceptual, cinematic identity, and his collection of works explores this on locations around the world. His acute eye for light, colour and detail define's this photographers work.
Graduating in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, Joscelin Chew's work focuses around deep topography, the experience of the walking process disrupted by the medium format camera, which serves as a mediating device between the image and the experience.
The practice explores the ways of looking at images, the visual culture of the aerial view as well as notions of abstraction. The emphasis is in raising questions with regards to the concept of 'place'.
To illustrate the connection that Chew is expressing in her work, she directs us to a wonderful quote by American born author, environmentalist, human rights campaigner and contributing editor of Harper's Magazine, Rebecca Solnit.
“The magic of the street is the mingling of the errand and the epiphany.” - Rebecca Solnit
