Photographic exhibition to encourage reflection on time and place

09 September 2016


Landscapes – a particular type of fiction is the title of a forthcoming exhibition of photographs to be shown on the Spires & Steeples Arts and Heritage Trail in North Kesteven.

Part of three touring exhibitions of Phil Coskers photographic work on show this autumn in Lincoln, Gainsborough and Hull, the exhibition will be on show from Sunday, 18th September until Monday, 24th October 2016 in the churchyards of All Saints, Branston (pictured above); All Saints, Nocton; St Peter’s, Dunston; St Oswalds, Blankney; Holy Cross, Scopwick; and St Clements, Rowston.

Each location is set to display a large photographic image, measuring ten feet by eight feet, and audiences are encouraged to visit each site to the see the collection in its entirety. Speaking ahead of the exhibition, Phil Cosker has said, “These very large images try to capture the volume and sense of space in the locations in which they were made. The acuity of the lens and the capture of the passage of time in a still frame offer a particular way of seeing. But of course what we see in these large photographs is not what is, or was, there, but a fiction, an imagination of passing time and place. Beyond that  to me they are beautiful  I hope you agree.”

Landscapes  a particular type of fiction is supported by artsNK. A special launch event is to take place at All Saints, Branston on Sunday, 18th September at 12.30pm (the launch follows on from the serving of tea and coffee after the morning service at the church, and all are welcome).
