Paul Gaffney - We Make the Path by Walking & Michal Iwanowski - Clear of People

About

Paul Gaffney We Make the Path by Walking Made over several journeys across southern Europe, Gaffney's landscape photographs chronicle over two thousand miles of terrain, all negotiated on foot. We Make the Path by Walking immerses the viewer in a series of untraceable landscapes that appear at the same time undisturbed yet excavated. These quiet and subtle images consider the notion of long distance walking as a form of meditation and personal transformation. Paul Gaffney (b. 1979) is an Irish artist who is currently undertaking a practice-based PHD in photography at the University of Ulster in Belfast. He has been nominated for various international awards including the European Publishers Award for Photography. Exhibition supported by Culture Ireland. Michal Iwanowski Clear of People Michal Iwanowski's work retraces an epic journey his grandfather and great uncle made in 1945 after escaping from a prisoner-of-war camp in Russia, and in extreme hardship walked 2000 km to Poland in search of their family. Clear of People documents this journey. The images and writing capture Iwanowski's own travels through landscape marked by history as well as echoing his grandfather's experience of a quest for safety in a hostile environment. Michal Iwanowski is a Polish born, Cardiff based, artists who currently teaches at Ffotogallery. His work explores the relationship between landscape and memory. Project supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
