Abandoned Soviet Military Base | Tagaranna, Saare, Saaremaa, Estonia | 5 July 2017

A former Soviet military base lies abandoned on the Estonian island of Saaremaa. Evidence of Soviet occupancy can be found all over Estonia and its islands. Soon many of these places will be demolished. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to be able to wander through many of the buildings to document their existence before they eventually get torn down.

Saturday Mothers Missing Persons Demonstration | Galatasaray, Istanbul, Turkey | 22 August 2015

The protest group ‘Saturday Mothers’ gather every Saturday at 12:00pm for half an hour forming a silent sit-in demonstration in the Galatasaray district of Istanbul. They ask the fate of relatives who were victims of forced disappearances and political murders between the 1980’s and 1990’s. In memory they hold a portrait in one hand and a red carnation in the other, demanding justice for their relatives. The banner placed on the floor reads, “Failler belli kayıplar nerede?” which means, “Where are the missing?”

Black Country Echoes | Exhibition | Dudley Street, Wolverhampton | September – December 2014

Jonathon Will, Tony Blood, Laura Moseley and Angelika Molek have used the photography and artistic skills developed during the course of their degree to create reponses to the themes of Landscape, People, Art and Industry. Four very different series of images emerges focusing on the post industrial communities and landscapes of the Black Country, to the new and emerging nascent possibilities of the present showing local people making their lives and living in the Black Country, now.

Four different types of work and approaches to the themes are on show. Jon Wills transforms images of industry and individuals in to intriguing montages which merge the people and their place of work; Tony Blood and Angelica Molek use a more traditional documentary approach to show work and living in the region, whilst Laura Moseley’s images are close observations of the interaction of people and the landscape they inhabit. David Shepherd, a previous graduate from the university, has done a fantastic job of co-ordinating the exhibitions.

The graduates work is on display at The School of Art and Design, Wolverhampton in the Bessant Gallery from 1 September to 31 October and is open to the public from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. You can see the work on a larger scale, bringing art to the masses, in Dudley Street, Wolverhampton from September to December 2014.
