PhotoSketch - The Art of Walking

31 July 2019

SIG: Women in Photography

Fleur Olby and Al Brydon are planning another Polaroid workshop and photowalk in the Peak District. Participants will be visiting a variety of locations during the day and walking between 6-8 miles. The walks are near three reservoirs over fairly rough terrain in parts with some steep hills.  

Shared Polaroid cameras and film will be provided - please bring your own cameras too. For details and booking, please contact Fleur directly via the email link on PhotoSketch

Fleur Olby is a photographic artist based in North Yorkshire. Established in London, her work has been published, commissioned and exhibited internationally.  Her first monograph, Fleur, Plant Portraitswas published in 2005, beginning her transition into archival collaborations and a long-term body of work about nature. In 2018, Fleur published the series, Velvet Black, which is now in the V&A's National Library collection of artists' books, while the limited edition handmade A6 version is on display in the vitrine at The Photographers Gallery. Images from the book were exhibited in the show On Making at the National Museum in Gdansk, Poland earlier this year. 

Al Brydon is a UK photographer based in South Yorkshire and co-founder of the landscape photography collective, Inside the Outside. He has been exhibited in the UK and abroad, most recently showing work with US-based photographer JM Golding at the Dickerman Print gallery in San Fransisco, and the Inside the Outside exhibition at the Argentea Gallery in Birmingham.  Al has been published online many times and, more recently, in print with Another Place Press and Inside the Outside's own publications. His book Solargraphs was published in May and another book is due out later this year.
