Joining us for our first session after our summer break is East Midlands-based photographer George Miles, author of multiple photographic monographs including the widely exhibited Views of Matlock Bath, published by Black Dog Publishing in 2014.


Miles will speak about his practice to date, his inspirations and influences and his experience under the mentorship of the American master of photography, Stephen Shore.   “Views of Matlock Bath draws upon a variety of pictorial representations from photography and painting, the valley itself being of great significance in formalising ideas of Landscape as a genre in its own right.  Miles’ sublime large-format colour photographs explore how the land is used, viewed and mediated: both physically and through representations of it. The town having bore witness to the consolidation of the English landscape tradition through visiting artists on the Grand Tour, the birth of both the Industrial Revolution, and of mass tourism (the first package holiday organised by Thomas Cook in 1841)” – Black Dog Publishing   Miles recently exhibited at the 2015 edition of FORMAT International Photography Festival with his series Where Druids Died. It was published as a limited edition photobook by Antler Press on the occasion of the exhibition.
