Premier of Manchester Scenes by Leading British Photographer at CUBE


CUBE is delighted to be showcasing ‘The British Landscape' by acclaimed photographer John Davies. This will be the first time the exhibition comes to Manchester — not too be missed! Narrative landscape photographer, John Davies, captures the British landscape in a permanent state of flux. His black and white photographs, taken between 1979 and 2005 show the vast, complex and majestic scenery of industrial and post industrial Britain. Taken from an elevated position, these photographs show not an idealised countryside but a middle state, both rural and urban, constantly reinvented by trends in industry, agriculture and construction - each view in itself a fabrication. Davies' works are coolly detached and highly seductive in their display of rare moments of calm and quiet amidst the inevitable changes of these modern landscapes. Come to CUBE to explore the British Landscape in all it's glory! The exhibition begins in the heart of Greater Manchester where the artist has documented Hulme, Salford and Stockport. You then have the opportunity to travel further through the gallery stopping off at Newcastle, Derbyshire, Cumbria and Wales and ending up in the Isle of Sky!
