@EverydayClimateChange exhibitions.

Lots of good news regarding the @EverydayClimateChange Instagram photography group of which I’m a contributing member, and which was founded by Tokyo-based photographer James Whitlow Delano. We’ve managed to secure a few different exhibitions of the work, bring our important photographs documenting climate change off of the Instagram feed and onto the gallery walls.

Over the coming weeks and month or two there’ll be exhibitions of the work in Cascais, Portugal, another show in Verona, Italy and one in Glasgow, Scotland. Details of all three shows are below.

Trongate 103, Glasgow, Scotland.

This show is made possible by the generous support and assistance of Malcolm Dickson at Street Level Photoworks. The show will run from 4th October – 4th November. 

There will be a launch drinks reception, at which I’ll do a talk about the work and our EvrrydayClimateChange group, on 4th October, at about 6pm or 6:30pm. Check for details a little closer to the time!

This show forms part of Scotland’s Season of Photography 2018, and also part of the Season for Change (Artist’s responses to climate change).

Exhibiting artists will be James Whitlow Delano, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, Ed Kashi, Matilde Gattoni, Nick Loomis, J.B. Russell, Mark Peterson, Mette Lampcov, Ashley Crowther, John Novis, Georgina Goodwin, Sima Diab, Elisabetta Zavoli, Suthep Kritsanavarin.

At Cascais in Portugal. 

On show at the Paredao de Cascais, Portugal, until 15th September. This is a free, outdoor event. Go take a look on your way to the beach.

Last year the City of Cascais engaged in a communication program to raise people attention about some central contemporary topics, one of these is the Climate Change.
The City of Cascais infact is already suffering from the impacts of this great problem with exceptional heat waves and sea level rise.

With thanks to the Department of Cultural Affairs of the City of Cascais (Portugal).

Show was made possible with help from Marta and Livia at Photo-Op Italy.


Natural History Museum of Verona, Italy.

The exhibition will take place at Verona’s Natural History Museum, from the 5th of October 2018 to 13th of January 2019. And is kindly technically supported by Fuji who will produce the prints.

There will also be a catalogue printed to accompany the show, printed by Silvana Editoriale.

North Sea Fishing

In Scotland’s Season of Photography, the Scottish Fisheries Museum is delighted to be hosting a striking exhibition of black and white images shot aboard the seine net fishing boats, Mairead and Argosy, in the North Sea in the 1990’s. These images, by Scottish documentary photographer Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, capture the reality of the life at sea for the fishermen of Scotland’s North East fishing communities – the cramped conditions, the monotony, and the grueling work in harsh conditions.

12th November 2016 – 19th February 2017
Entry included in museum admission

Here, Jeremy talks about how the work came about:

“Considering I come from a land-locked family I’ve done my fair share of bobbing about on the waves of the planet, and no sea has more bobbing than the North Sea (although going through the 40degress and 50 degree latitudes of the Southern Ocean was quite interesting). The North Sea – “a confused sea” as it was once described to me and, as one fishing trawler skipper told me, late at night, only the instrument panel lighting the bridge room, “the north sea, she’s a cruel mistress”.

I think my first experience on the North Sea was on a fishing trawler, on an overnight assignment photographing fishing trawlers for a paper. There was a fisherman’s protest, lots of trawlers all together, protesting latest EU rules and regulations, net sizes and quotas. I got sent out to photograph. It was a night of adventure: watch dawn rise, shoot the other boats, back to harbour, home by lunchtime. The skipper that night, Ronnie, was a decent chap. I asked him how long he usually goes out for at a time, “10 days”, was the reply. “Can I come next time?” I asked. He smiled, he laughed, he replied, “if you think you can handle it, you can come, but there’s no going back. If you’re sea sick you’ll be sea sick for 10 days”. Count me in.”

The results of this expedition are captured in these striking images which serve as an important record of a period and style of fishing which is already passing into history and the Scottish Fisheries Museum is pleased to be able to provide our visitors with an insight into the working conditions for seine net fishermen, operating far from the safety and comforts of the shore.

We feel equally privileged to be hosting the inaugural display of this exhibition which will then tour other venues nationwide. The production has been made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of several organisations including Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow, Scottish Fishermen’s Trust, Scottish Fishermen’s Organisation and Loxley Colour Photo Lab.

A Window On Glasgow

I’m pleased to announce that 4 photographs of mine will be on display in the Consul’Art, in Marseille, France, in the coming weeks, as part of the Street Level Photoworks exhibition ‘A Window On Glasgow’.

This exhibition profiles aspects of Glasgow in 26 photographs covering styles of social documentary and portraiture to street and architectural photography, by several photographers who are associated with Street Level as artists and co-creators. The work portrays a unique profile of a city in constant transition – from the mid 70s, when half the city’s tenements were being demolished and the other half undergoing transformation and construction, to more recent depictions of people and place which convey the energy of change in the environment and in the diversity and demographics of its inhabitants. From a city recovering from the post-war deindustrialisation and depopulation, to one that has cohered around  community spirit, civic pride and a cultural resurgence in its art, music, theatre and writing, the exhibition aims to capture aspects of the social, cultural and political identify of Scotland’s largest city.
