|Abstract:||A joint exhibition of photographic work at Focal Point Gallery, Southend on Sea (with Richard Page). Funded by the Focal Point Gallery and by Lincoln University. My contribution to this show was the product of some twelve months research and development. This show marked the first public showing of this body of work. At one level, Orchard Park and the practice based research which underpinned it continued my photographic exploration of the psychological legacies of different orders of place, by taking as its subject dispossessed domestic spaces and the detritus left behind in those sites by past occupants. Orchard Park made use of unfixed photographic images and engaged with notions of entropy, decay, loss and memory. By evoking the aesthetic of photographic Pictorials in a post-modern context, Orchard Park, is increasingly regarded as a significant contribution to contemporary practice. Orchard Park was widely reviewed: by Source magazine (Summer 2004), a-n (20 July 2004) and The Guardian (02.06.04) and has subsequently been exhibited at Stephen Cohen Gallery, Los Angeles, USA (January – February 2006), the University of Michigan Museum of Art, MI, USA (April – June 2006). The work is held in a major collection: George Eastman House, NY. The work has recently been reproduced in Portfolio magazine (Issue 43) & in EXIT magazine (Spain), spring 2007. A book based on the work (with an essay by Alison Nordstrom, Curator of photography at George Eastman House) was recently published by Impressions Gallery, York / Bradford, UK (Orchard Park, ed. Anne McNeill, Impress 2006) The work also appears in a recent Victoria & Albert Museum publication, entitled Twilight. I am currently negotiating with the V&A regarding their collecting images from the work|
