Over Hills and Seas

A new exhibition, “Over Hills and Seas”, will feature 32 photographic works from both Tim Andrews’ project "Over the Hill" and the period since it ended in 2016. As the title might suggest, the theme of the exhibition is Landscape and Seascape and will feature work by photographers who specialise in both as well as work by others where the environment in which the photograph has been taken is integral to the image. It is a fascinating collection, as you will see from the Over Hills and Seas (trailer) from Tim Andrews (please note that the video contains some nudity)

The exhibition, held in partnership with Brighton Photo Fringe, is at Regency Town House, 13 Brunswick Square, Hove, East Sussex BN3 1EH. It will run from Saturday 29 September to Sunday 28 October 2018 and be open from 12 noon to 6pm Thursday to Sunday only.

There will be a Private View of the exhibition from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday 4 October 2018 and a discussion forum featuring some of the participating photographers on Wednesday 17 October at Regency Town House.

The exhibition supports Parkinson's UK (Registered Charity No.258197) and any donations will be most gratefully received.

Water has been my conduit: it has sharpened my vision, given me permission to experiment and continues to introduce me to new ways of seeing. Before meeting Tim I’d begun to play with other forms of movement, so it was a natural step to see what might happen with a willing accomplice. We tweaked shutter speeds and varied our movements, absorbed in a strange courtship dance. Tim appeared in degrees of blur, at times recognisable, at others less so. He sprouted wings and changed from bird to angel, and among many sketches of Tim, I found the young man inside” says Michela.
