Josh Hilton

Hebden Bridge is known for its impressive  landscapes and countryside , something which differs greatly from living and working in a large city .When up on the very tops of the hills you are struck by the ever changing nature of the land caused by flooding and erosion , an issue which is engrained in the history of the local area .                    

Hilton documented this as well as his own feeling of alienation in sucha vast and empty space. Throughout this project his apprehension towards landscape photography was changing just as much as the environment around him.

Amanda Hennessy

With a nod toward Warhol’s minimalist epic films, Hennessy’s Cinemagraphic Escape pulls the viewer into a scene of undisguised subjectivity. The mannequins isolated, dead, it represents something once loved, but now abandoned. The initial image of loss is counteracted with slow-motion foliage that waves almost imperceptibly amongst the tombstones suggesting the artist is moving on to something new.
