The Spirit of the Downs is an exhibition by Sussex photographer Oliver Perrott. The exhibition, which was showing at the Court Gardens Vineyard, Ditchling until October 16th, will be relocating to Highdown Vineyard, Ferring, West Sussex, from October 29th - with a Private View between 6:30 and 8:30pm on the 28th. The 'Spirit of the Downs' is inspired by the South Downs way and the environment within the South Downs National Park. The images are captured on traditional film and explore the natural landscape and how it has been moulded and influenced by man's activities. I visted the exhibition on... Continue reading

The photo below shows my Canon 5D's mirror. Of course, it is most usefully to be found within the camera. However, this morning when out on a little expedition, the usual shutter noise was followed by an ugly death rattle. To my relief, when opened up, the mirror was just... Continue reading

Opening tomorrow as part of the De La Warr Pavilion's 'A Nod to Cage' season, Lucy Phillips is showing work from her ongoing project 'What Cannot be Seen'. Lucy says: "what cannot be seen is an attempt to create a visual and textual archive of the unseen by returning to the fundamentals of photographic image making. Inspired by my own experiments with pinhole photography and French artist Sophie Calle’s use of the camera as a covert device, I constructed 20 pinhole cameras from matchboxes and invited people to take part in a postal photography project via a Facebook status update....

Colin Merrin © Simon Courcha Whilst wandering round Lewes spreading the word about the forthcoming Photo Club in the Pub Course, Andy and I popped in to Lansdown Studios & Gallery on Lansdown Road and met artist and proprietor Colin Merrin. Now I should point out that although this is a photography site, we will occassionally feature other items of interest - particularly relating to the arts in Sussex - within our 'Around Sussex' category. Colin's landscape painting is textural and elemental - and is similar in some respects to Andy's Sussex landscape photography. In addition to showing Colin's work... Continue reading
