He has covered every up and coming band over the last two decades from Oasis to the White Stripes and recently shooting the official press shots for the mighty U2 on their new tour. Taking up photography in school, his love for pictures grew in tandem with his enthusiasm for the burgeoning music scene of the late 1980s. A job in his local camera shop started him off printing his own pictures and sending them to various music publications. His talent was quickly recognized and he was soon picked up by NME to shoot at various events. Andy has traveled all over the world taking pictures of leading bands.

John Curno has made black-and-white photographs of the British landscape since the late 1970s, inspired by opposing American traditions of landscape mysticism and realism and by European romantic ideas around decay. If there is no especially distinctive voice here and minimal conceptualisation, his best work is nonetheless very well seen and realised, and stands honourably alongside that of slighty older contemporaries such as Cooper, Blakemore and Godwin. This monograph of Curno’s life’s work is the first book published by Fotonow, a community photography organisation based in Plymouth.
“Dartmoor has a harsher beauty, more difficult to capture. This is Dartmoor in a different light and spirit, blending rocks, moor, fields and trees together in an abstract form, letting people see it as I often do. The altered landscapes of Dartmoor, the decay, death and rebirth of the moors, fascinates me.” - John Curno Lot Details: ‘Ponies on a Hill’ from ongoing Dartmoor project, recently shown at Devon Rural Archive. Printed on Fujifilm Fine Art Photo Rag. 14 x 9 inches Hardback book ‘It’s About Time’ signed by the artist. Publisher: Fotonow, 2012

In 1996 Andrew Nadolski began photographing the unique landscape of Porth Nanven, a remote beach on the west Cornwall coast. What began as an intensely personal set of pictures has grown to that of major exhibited work keenly sought by collectors. Published in book form, together with a fascinating essay by Dr Richard Scrivener of the British Geological Survey and a passionate foreword by Tim Smit, the work takes on an extra dimension. Here we see the interaction of land and sea that so fascinates Nadolski, not as isolated images but sequenced as a visual poem. The End of the Land is a powerful body of work that extends the boundaries of the photographed landscape and begins to question our understanding of humanity’s place in the universe and indeed, our perception of time itself. www.nadolski.com

This started at a young age, inspired by his grandfather who often brought with him his old Kodak for family walks amongst the beauty of nature. Currently his work is orientated around a topic close to his heart, food and people. By being able to grow up in this environment he has a complex understanding to capture beautifully arranged photographs of food and drink in settings that are familiar to many of us. Sutherland however takes this further by documenting the journeys undertaken and those individuals involved, a process he labels ‘source to plate’.

For over 20 years Tony Plant has created temporary, ephemeral works. Through subtle interventions he is able to tangibly alter the space within each of the works, ensuring each has its own presence. Like his contemporaries who graduated from Chelsea school of Art in 1990 he continually challenges the traditional understanding of artistic production by taking art out of the studio and into the everyday world. He often works in the margins, and through his use of ‘inquisitive experience’, creates works that are quiet, transient, simple but powerful.

Sean Currey has been taking photographs for 22 years. It all began when he witnessed a police officer assault an elderly woman at an animal rights protest, “I found that when I told people what I saw they would not believe a police officer would hit an old woman.” With this in mind he purchased an old Minolta 7000 and started to take photographs in order to provide evidence of the scenes he witnessed and became a regular at protests all over the South East. Since then he has progressed into landscape and various other genres in order to explore the world around him.

Jack Long is a Liquid Sculptor/Photographer. I use the term sculpture because my entire goal is to create intriguing three dimensional fluid forms. Because they are fluid and happen so quickly, photography is the only method of seeing them. The photography portion is only the final stage in the creation of these images of fluids suspended in mid-air for a very brief period of time. The whole action takes just a fraction of a second. I work to create and capture the three dimensional fluid form at it’s most interesting shape and position. The form is captured with high speed flash photography that has a duration of as brief as 1/10,000th of a second. Even with complicated construction and extensive testing, the results are still often surprising and serendipitous. While there is a lot of technical aspects to the work, my goal is to always strive to create Liquid Art Photography. As an experienced photographer, the quality of light and form are extremely important in bringing out the characteristics and shape of the fluids. www.jacklongphoto.com Lot Details: ‘Nacre’ from the Liquid Flower Series 12 x 8 inches Unframed Printed on Fujifilm Photo Satin.

As a photographer I never really had an overall plan for my work nor a common theme I wanted to document. I considered myself more of a traveler with a camera, interested in the current affairs situation of the world. Most of the time I worked on the African continent, mainly in the East. I discovered then approaching other humans with real interest in their stories, rather then the need to visually document their existence, widens my understanding more then the pure documentary process. I’m a human first and photographer second. After acquiring a bachelor of arts of Arts and Design from the University of applied science of Vorarlberg, Austria, in 2007, Marc Hofer was working as a freelance photo- and videojournalist in Africa since 2006. Mainly working in East Africa, Marc covered the also the war in Libya and the beginning of the uprising in Syria. His main customers are The Associated Press, Al Jazeera, Arise News, The New York Times and Channel 4 News. He is based in Nairobi.

Following his studies he became a freelance photographer and was one of the young generation of ‘struggle photographers’ documenting change and conflict in South Africa in the lead-up to Nelson Mandela’s release from prison. In 1990 he moved to London, from where he has focussed on social issues globally. He first began photographing the topic of AIDS in Africa in 1993 and in the past sixteen years his ground-breaking work on this issue has been widely recognized. His intimate style of committed photojournalism, whether in black and white or in colour, has earned him international acclaim. He has won six World Press Photo Awards, first prize in the American Pictures of the Year competition, a POY Canon Photo Essayist Award, the Eugene Smith Award for Humanistic Photography and the Amnesty International Media Award for Photojournalism. He has worked for many of the world’s leading magazines—among them National Geographic, Fortune Magazine, Condé Naste Traveller, Geo, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Guardian Weekend Magazine, L’Express and Stern Magazine.

Robin Maddock is an English photographer, based in London and San Francisco and he describes himself as a “social documentary photography … for now”. He’s published two books – Our Kids Are Going to Hell (Trolley, 2009), and God Forgotten Face (Trolley, 2012). He has an MA in Photographic Studies at the University of Westminster: he says that not only is photography a means of expression and a way of making sense of the world but that it can “connect us to the past and help us think differently about the future”. Amongst other honours he’s been nominated for the Deutsche Börse Award in 2010 and selected by Martin Parr as one of the ‘rising stars of photography’ for the Smithsonian Institute: “Maddock’s views and snatches of life are both surreal and individual. He has the enviable ability to turn nothing much into something quite profound.” God Forgotten Face, is a series of pictures taken over a number of years in Plymouth, a city in the west of England that was heavily bombed during the Second World War and subsequently the test bed for radical 1050’s utopian reconstruction. The target of the bombing raids, the Dock Yard, was drastically downsized in the 80’s with the loss of nearly 30,000 jobs. Maddock chose the city because of personal ties (his father was born there) and ”a desire to do a project about England”. Another factor was the fact that he “felt quite outside and alienated by the city.”

David Ward is one of Britain’s most notable landscape photographers. His eye for shape and form is without equal and produces work that is startling in its clarity and intensity. With more than 20 years’ experience in large-format photography, he has photographed extensively throughout the UK and in countries such as Canada, Iceland, Norway and France. Over the years David has photographed everything from dogs to food to racing cars, but the landscape has remained his passion. In recent years he has concentrated his efforts on leading photography workshops, taking groups to places as diverse as Utah and Norway. His emphasis in teaching is on the photographer’s vision, rather than on what equipment is being used, and he passes on his knowledge in a uniquely humorous and accessible manner. David’s photographs are distinctive for their graphic simplicity and superb technical quality. He is fascinated by deeper questions about photography, asking why we do things rather than how. David’s first book, ‘Landscape Within’, a philosophical look at photography, was published by Argentum in the Autumn of 2004. In 2008 ‘Landscape Beyond’ was published in which David looks at what he considers to be the three essential ingredients of a photograph: beauty, mystery and simplicity.
“The small town of Casteluccio sits on the edge of a bowl carved from the lofty Appenines. For me it is one of the most real places that I visited in Umbria; the notion of progress seems not to have reached this high into the mountains, buildings have not been over-restored, the populace is not concerned with the tourist dollar. But the outstanding thing for me was the almost barren rolling landscape leading to towering mountains on all sides. A wonderfully abstract combination of curves and muted colours.” www.into-the-light.com

Paulina Wysocka is a third year student at Plymouth College of Art. Originally from Poland, she is bringing her roots and experiences into her work. As an emerging artist she is working within fine art photography. The photograph is an outcome of an extended study for the final project of the foundation degree that Paulina completed earlier this year. About Hope: Any photograph, regardless of source, can function as a connection to someone, sometime, someplace. This photograph was very significant in the production of ‘Nothing is coming’. Within the investigation I undertook, I found that we can learn to see in vibrant colours if we really want to. What can be first read from ‘Hope’ is darkness, a dull and dirty window, broken glass. All the elements are dull and depressing and the part that I brought into the image gives it a different meaning. The window is an entrance to somewhere unknown and the sunflower suggests that there is something good behind that window. It’s warm, yellow petals symbolise that little hope, hope for the better.

‘I like to let my work speak for itself and don’t often feel the need to explain much.

All of my photographic images are printed directly from the negative and so are totally analogous in nature. I love the rich colour and grain which can be achieved through film photography.

The John Hinde Collection has been entrusted with scanning and digitally restoring a set of the original transparencies, by John Hinde Ltd, from the world famous John Hinde postcards. Taken by John Hinde and his trained team of photographers, Elmar Ludwig, Edmund Nägele and David Noble, the pictures depict some of the nation’s best loved domestic holiday destinations during the 1960s and 70s. John Hinde is considered to be one of the pioneers of colour photography. At the time black and white images dominated the postcard market, however as a trained colour photographer Hinde was determined to create bright and vibrant cards of English and Irish landscape. These were so in demand that by 1966 Hinde was running one of the largest postcard companies in the world. Each photograph was meticulously staged, sometimes taking weeks to achieve while waiting for the right weather conditions, and processed in Italy where colour technology was more advanced. Often considered kitsch and at a time when only black and white photography was taken seriously, Hinde’s pictures never received critical acclaim. In the late 70s colour photography finally began to receive acknowledgement from museums. Around the same time Martin Parr began to renew interest in Hinde’s work, hailing it for its documentary value and exceptional technical accomplishment. www.johnhindecollection.com

Tim Pearse is a practising fine art and portrait photographer based in Somerset. The synthesis of fine art photography and craftsmanship is the central creative methodology present in the making of his work, all else branching from this tactile method to produce unique, one of a kind art objects. Utilising a giant handmade camera combined with nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century technology, the representation of his artistic ideology comes to the surface, engaging with concepts of sustainability in the face of progressivism, through surrealist mirroring of semiotic contexts or direct positioning of complex thematic responses to personal thought processes. Specialising in ultra large format photography and the wet collodion process, Pearse works within studio environments and on location to produce creative responses to commercial briefs and individual commissions, as well as working on personal projects for exhibition on a national level.

“I’m thankful to have grown up in and around the sea in South Devon. When I was about 14, I got hooked on bodyboarding. I had a great pack of friends to surf and hang out with locally down here and up in North Cornwall, but as soon as I was able, I began travelling in search of the images I had spent my youth staring at in magazines.” - Ollie Howe

Charlie Waite is firmly established as one of the world’s leading landscape photographers. His photographic style is often considered to be unique, in that his photographs convey an almost spiritual quality of serenity and calm. Charlie’s photographs are held in private and corporate collections throughout the world, and he has held numerous solo exhibitions at prestigious venues in the UK, Japan and the USA. Charlie was recently featured in Amateur Photographer Magazine’s series Icons of Modern Photography, and his images have received wide critical acclaim over many years. A recent article in Royal West of England Academy Art Magazine featuring Charlie’s work commented “Waite’s landscapes are rare perfections of light, colour and composition, and offer the viewer a luxuriant portrait of a planet at peace”. In 2000 Charlie was awarded the prestigious honorary fellowship to the British Institute of Professional Photographers and in early 2007 was presented with Amateur Photography’s Power of Photography Award, which is given to a photographer whose work is deemed to effectively demonstrate the powerful and memorable images of which photography is capable. www.charliewaite.com Lot Details ‘Valensole in France’ 16 x 12 inches Open Edition Print
PHIL NICHOLLS MULTIPLE LOTS
Photographer Phil Nicholls was born in Cornwall and studied at Falmouth School of Art and Bath Academy of Art. A passion for music and the related rock images of cult photographer Anton Corbijn lead him to abandon fine art and specialise in photography. In 1985, not long after leaving Bath Academy he received his first break in the music business scooping the Zigzag/Pentax Photographer of the Year Rock Portrait Award. This took him to London beginning his career as a freelance music photographer. He joined weekly music paper Melody Maker in 1985 and over the next 12 years became renowned for his gritty, intelligent portraits of rock celebrities, developing into a major figure in his field. His iconic images of artists like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Amy Winehouse, The Prodigy, Bjork and Courtney Love have appeared in Vogue, Uncut, Q, The Guardian, Telegraph, NME and countless other titles, while his work has been exhibited in London, Brussels and Tokyo.
