We are happy to announce Wandering: Cyanotypes from Itoshima, an exhibition by Linsey Walker, as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura on December 24 (Sat) & 25 (Sun).
Linsey Walker is a photographic artist, drawn to the documentary style of photography. He doesn’t pre-visualize his images, but rather finds them through the process of wandering. Landscapes, architecture, and lost and lonely objects often inspire him. He seeks to capture the essence, or soul, of his subjects, and tries to steer clear of romantic clichés and show local flavour without compromising his subjects to cultural stereotypes.
His process is intuitive in nature, and his work is a reflection of self in response to place.
Here are some words from the artist himself.
When I leave the house there is no agenda, and I don’t visualise photographs in advance of taking them. The destination is one of discovery, and both reveal one’s self, and the soul of the place, in the process of wandering. My process was inspired by a quote from J.R.R. Tolkien where he said, “Not all those who wander are lost.”. This exhibition is a collection of cyanotypes from my wandering around Itoshima.
