Photography from Brighton's back garden - by Finn Hopson
July - September 2015
The latest and largest collection of work from this ongoing project. For the last five years Finn Hopson has been photographing the ever changing landscapes of the UK's newest national park, the South Downs. Plough lines show off the gentle undulations of a field; sea mists roll over the hillsides; and cattle follow each other across the rolling flanks of the escarpments as the sun begins to rise. These are places that define the Downs, where the patterns, shapes and quality of light combine to show off the best of this small ridge of chalky hills.
After growing up in Brighton and spending countless hours up on the hills that surround the city, he now spends his time photographing his most local landscape and is constantly surprised by how much there still is to discover just a few miles from his front door.
The exhibition includes new images taken in the last twelve months, some new prints from his archive and a selection of the most popular images from recent years. The gallery is open seven days a week, from 11-5 on week days and 10.30-6 at weekends.
