Northern light: landscape, photography and the North

Liza Dracup, Andrew Robinson (Editor), Darcy White, Chris Goldie

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    The work presented here is an expression in book form of the exhibition ‘Northern Light’ curated by Michèle Lazenby and exhibited at the SIA Gallery, Sheffield Hallam University in July 2016 to accompany an academic conference of the same name hosted by Darcy White and Chris Goldie.
    The aim of this publication is to represent the work exhibited and extend the discourse of both conference and exhibition through a considered selection and presentation of imagery revealing a range of contemporary responses to the northern landscape and its representation through photography.

    Northern Light – Landscape Photography and Evocations of the North - was a conference and related exhibition held at Sheffield Hallam University, exploring the many ways in which photographic images address notions of a northern landscape – whether drawing on established traditions of art and photography or concerned with contemporary photographic and lens based practice. We invited papers and photographic artefacts that explored or responded to the wide reach of the geographical north and exhibited work made in the north of England, Scotland’s Highlands and Western Isles, Northern Europe, Canada, Alaska, Siberia, the Arctic and the Nordic territories.
