'In & Of the Land'

London Alternative Photography Collective

London Alternative Photography Collective presents 'In & Of the Land', an exhibition and series of public events focusing on photographic work created in a way that both represents and looks after the landscape.

Exhibiting in the Phoenix Gallery during this years Photo Fringe, Bryony Good and Eileen White are showing work exploring their respective local landscapes of Brighton and Winchester. The works have been printed specifically for this exhibition using natural printing processes, ground pigments from the earth and plant based photographic developers.

To coincide with this work, our online exhibition includes the work of Hannah Fletcher, Matt Slater, Melanie King and Nettie Edwards. Who are contributing to the 'In & Of the Land' series of workshops and talks.

'In & Of the Land' explores human narratives embedded in the natural world. It seeks to question our role as stewards of this Earth and the way we represent the the land we stand on.

The collective

The London Alternative Photography Collective was founded by Melanie King in 2013, and has grown from a small group of analogue and alternative photography practitioners to a collective which produces large-scale symposiums, exhibitions and workshops. Now, co-directed by Melanie King, Almudena Romero, Diego Valente and Hannah Fletcher, the LAPC is an open collective, which anyone can join. Open to artists who have ideas for projects, the LAPC has always been about promoting the accessibility and creative possibilities of analogue and experimental photography. We aim to support practitioners who challenge traditional ways of using photography to reflect on contemporary issues and aim to provide a platform for skill exchange.
