Following Andy Sewell’s acclaimed first body of work, The Heath, we are pleased to announce an exhibition of his latest series, Something Like a Nest.
Andy Sewell’s photographs are clearly a record of the countryside. But his pictures are about something less obvious: the redundancy of the ideas we have about the pastoral when they come up against modern life. –Financial Times
Following on from The Heath, Sewell’s latest body of work continues to explore the idea of the rural idyll, examining how actual scenes of country life have changed in light of twenty-first century advances. Discussing the series, Sewell notes that he hopes to create a countryside in which these threads exist together where the noise of contemporary life bleeds into pastoral ideas and conventions.
Andy Sewell has been described by Martin Parr as a bright new talent likely to make his mark on the future of photography. His work is is found in important private and public collections including the V&A, The Museum of London and the National Media Museum.
