An exhibition of landscape photography of rural Devon and Cornwall by Jem Southam, exploring natural phenomena. A series of walks, talks and workshops programmed to coincide with the show.

About

Jem Southam is a leading British landscape photographer whose work, which explores natural phenomena, is usually presented in series. At Kestle Barton Jem will show a new development in his work in which individual pictures stand alone, each a notation of a moment, on a particular walk, on a given day. 

The theme of walking in nature is reflected in an exciting programme of walks and talks that will accompany the exhibition. For events May 30 - June 2 with Jem Southam, naturalist and writer Mark Cocker (Crow Country), ornithologist Math Southam and poet Virginia Astley please see our website for more details. 

Born in Bristol in 1950, Southam studied at the London College of Printing for a Higher Diploma in Creative Photography in the early 1970s and went on to become Professor of Photography at the University of Plymouth until last year (2018). He has exhibited extensively and has work in major collections around the world.
'Birds Rivers Rain' is a partnership exhibition in collaboration with The Arts Institute and The Box, Plymouth and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
