About

Meet Mark Neville at The Photographers’ Gallery in London. Neville will host a group tour of his exhibition at the gallery and discuss his work and influences related to his artistic practice, conceptual framework and process.

Mark Neville’s project Parade, published by the Centre d’Art GwinZegal, Guingamp, France (2019) focused on a farming community in Brittany.

Neville began taking photographs in Guingamp, Brittany (“little Britain”) in 2016 and over three years, produced a complex, multi-layered portrait of this tight-knit provincial farming region. Connecting art and social documentary practices, he further photographed different agribusinesses in the community – from small holdings to large industries. The resulting photobook, now accompanied by a publication of essays by Brittany farmers articulating the need for a sustainable, humane, even ecotopian type of agriculture, was sent out to UK and European ministries of agriculture and food as well as key policy makers, calling for the urgent adoption of more ecological methods of farming.

The exhibition features 21 prints depicting the residents of Guingamp and reflecting their pastimes, agriculture and relationship to animals.

The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize is an annual award, originated by The Photographers’ Gallery, to recognise and support the most innovative, original and relevant photography-based practice within a given year.
