Kingston Satellite Group Show: Eleven Photographers
Andrew Gulland photo
The inaugural exhibition by eleven members of the Kingston Satellite Group of London Independent Photography.
The exhibition will showcase eleven very different approaches to photography, subject matter and use of techniques including film as well as digital. The exhibition will reflect the range and diversity of approaches with images sourced from Burma to Brick Lane, from the abstract to the provocative, from that agonising moment of suspense to the spiritual and magical.
Participating photographers are Bronwen Brighton, Mary Douglas, Andrew Gulland, George Hill, Ian Holden, Richard Lydon, Simon Richards, Simon Robinson, Helen Sterne, John Warren and Rosemary Williams.

Ealing Satellite Group Show: Small Adventures
Being in the everyday can be thought of as a series of small adventures. At the heart of photography is seeing and paying attention to what often goes unnoticed. A key practice is the discipline of taking a camera on all occasions with quiet attention of the eyes and heart. Those adventures can be undertaken in the most local and familiar of journeys – a walk down the road to the shops or a commute into work. They are discovered by getting off the regular tourist trail and away from the sights when travelling. And they are stumbled upon by getting out of the comfort zones with the camera in challenging conditions. Small Adventures is an exhibition that tell stories in this way.
The photographs are all taken by members of Ealing London Independent Photography, a satellite group of London Independent Photography.

Yoke Matze photo
Yoke Matze and John Chappelow will show photographic images and books in an Artists’ Open House as part of the Dulwich Festival.
The pleasure of looking, exploring, and making connections is an important element of Yoke’s work. She is inspired by the land and the endless cycles of nature.
John says, “Landscapes, seascapes, abstracts, people, still life. I simply enjoy making pictures, particularly if they can convey more than is visually apparent or explore the interaction between perception and deception that is inherent in photography”.

Daniel Regan: Crowning Glory (Glasgow)
An exhibition exploring the complex autoimmune disorder alopecia, through a series of arresting portraits. The condition can cause partial or total hair loss for unknown reasons and can affect people of all ages, backgrounds and genders. Regrowth is unpredictable and in many cases non-recurring. The condition is thought to affect 1.7% of the population.
Throughout this ongoing project, Daniel invites people to be photographed as and how they want to be photographed. For some it involves baring all and showing their ‘naked selves’ and for others they may wish to keep their eyelashes or eyebrows. The true message of the project is that it’s OK being you, but most importantly being the you that you choose. danielregan.com/projects/alopecia

Clare Park: Gathering Light and Breaking Form (Cambridge)
Clare Park shines a light on the world of clinical research and also Parkinson’s disease, in this exhibition at ArtCell Gallery, in the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute.
Gathering Light was commissioned by the Joint Research Office at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with support from UCLH Arts, and was first exhibited at UCH Street Gallery in April 2012. The work is the result of a ground-breaking project in which five clinical researchers and their patients collaborated with Clare to explore their feelings about the challenging journey in clinical research. The focus is on ‘translational research’ where researchers work to transform scientific discoveries into new treatments that have a direct effect on patient care. The photographs capture the unique relationship between patient and doctor and the hope and human spirit wrapped up in research projects.
Clare is also showing some images from her series Breaking Form: Buz and Parkinson’s. This is an on-going collaborative project with a UCLH patient, Buz Williams, and his family exploring the impact of Parkinson’s disease. The images exhibited are part of the narrative photographic study developed over the past two decades within a context of their personal lives and shared professional backgrounds of theatre, movement and dance. www.clarepark.tv

Peter Marshall in Estuary
Estuary brings together the work of 12 artists who have been inspired by the outer limits of the Thames where the river becomes the sea. The exhibition marks the 10th anniversary of the Museum of London Docklands.
With its dramatic landscape – desolate mudflats and saltmarshes, vast open skies, container ports, power stations and seaside resorts – the Estuary has long been a rich source of inspiration for artists and writers. Through film, photography, painting and printmaking, the contemporary artists featured in this exhibition offer new insight into this often overlooked, yet utterly compelling, environment and the people that live and work there.
The exhibition includes 10 panoramic photographs by LIP member Peter Marshall.

Katherine Green: At Home with Morris
At Home with Morris is a series of intimate domestic studies about home decoration and personal taste. At a time when the predominant trend has been to decorate a home in a ‘neutral’ palette, these images focus on the homes of William Morris admirers who have chosen to decorate their environments with his designs. Few other designers inspire such dedication and passion and for the majority of the homes photographed, decorating with Morris designs is an extension of personal and political beliefs.
