Graduate Sean Gardiner's images in Gilchrist-Fisher exhibition.
Gardiner’s work features in the competition exhibition which is due to open later this week when the winners will be announced. First prize is £3,000 with £1,000 for the runner-up.
The judges are painter Stephen Chambers RA, critic and broadcaster Matthew Collings, landscape photographer Harry Cory-Wright, and painter Elizabeth Magill.
Gardiner, who is based in Dorset, takes inspiration from the natural world, emphasising a sense of quiet and simplicity. Never considering the photographs to be influenced by or about a certain thing, Gardiner says he sees “space and ambiguity as a vital element” of his practice. Since his 2012 graduation, he has exhibited in Norway and Sweden, and Lilk Gallery in the UK.
The exhibition runs from 6-28 March at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, 2A Conway Street, London W1T 6BA.
