About

As part of Brighton Photo Fringe 2016; Ben Bird, Paul Smith and Tom Warland have come together to exhibit photographic work that explores issues of concealment. The imagery brings together a unique photographic collective with all artists currently working as photographic educators (FE and HE) and all working on photographic film (Kodak and Ilford). Focusing on the violence and mortality hidden within the landscape, the works have a synergy that despite the differing approaches, link together to expose the world around us.

Artists and Works

The three photographers are: Ben Bird, Paul Sebastian Smith and Tom Warland. Ben Bird’s work 25,000,000m3 (2015) concerns the man altered landscape created as a consequence of destruction and the physical remnants of the city of Berlin, Germany. The project investigates the landscape created out of the remnants of Berlin’s destructed buildings during World War Two. Bird uses photography and sculpture to expose the fractured landscape of the buildings buried within the environment. Paul Sebastian Smith’s work Zinc (2015) focuses on the town of Zinc, Arkansas and its legacy as the home of the Ku Klux Klan ,Tom Warland’s The Sentrymen (2013) explores the shrouded guardians of English stately homes throughout the winter months. The work exposes the reinvention of a sculptural form, from classical figures to metaphors of death. Using a large-format camera Warland captures the detailed observations of the sculpture’s new form.
