As a Fine Art student it has often intrigued me how much of my university studies in art are taken up by things that are not actually creating art. This short series ‘Studies in Art’ is a snapshot, showing the narrative of one week of...

Do You See Us? is a series that presents how fashion can be more inclusive as 10 young people represent their gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class, disabilities, and individual style through fashion. This body of work includes a collection of shoots that have allowed the models...

I took the woodlands pictures not only because of Green and a good sunlight but because forestry releases good amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide and woodland is a need for feeding Earth  and a need for stability in the environment.   By Raju Sinha...

My name is Olena Lemberska. I am a Ukrainian photographer, born in Ukraine, in the city of Kyiv, where I live and work now. My main profession is a doctor.   A few years ago, I decided to devote more time to photography, which I have loved...

Paved Paradise The song 'Big Yellow Taxi' questions our relationship with nature and our tendency to overlook the beauty of the natural world, instead we exploit its resources and pave it in concrete.  It reminds us of the importance of nature and the unnecessary facade of the not-so-perfect brick and concrete world we replace it with. I...

What do the photographic self-portraits that wake in the networks as avatars do while we surf or sleep?   Photographic splinters of views of our selfs represent our identity in a place that we ourselves cannot enter. The physicality itself becomes a barrier to its own representation. Photography can act...

a house is a mountain streets make up valleys carved by grid-locked stream deep into the distance chimney peaks - alpine flowers littered scrunched rolling papers in full bloom tobacco moss covers every surface - echoes of calamity in the valley on my toes scramble through a fog of skunk knockoff cologne - I love alpine air by Claudia Platzer...

Let’s begin with death. We need death in the garden. We find this in a simple process of decomposing organic material. When we allow our apple cores, coffee granules, carrot peelings, eggshells, grass and plant clippings, dry leaves, shredded newspaper, and chopped wood, to become compost, we...

My sprouting journey began when I came across an episode on the Rich Roll podcast called ‘surviving Juicero & Thriving on Sprouts’ which the protagonist Dough Evans talked about all the health benefits of eating and growing your own sprouts. I found that over the counter...

The propagation of strawberry is relying on the runners, but not the fruit. The original plant will stretch its runners horizontally, and seeking any space on the surface for them to root. Once they get into position, then they are ready to grow. Runners do not...

While seeing to my plants I discovered a pot coated in a white deposit known as efflorescence, an accumulation of salts and minerals that have been absorbed through the porous walls of the terracotta pot and remain after the water evaporates. The concept of growth from...

Take a deep, slow, long breath Unknowing Walk strictly left Pray each night Don’t end in hell Yoga is the devil Astrology is the dark Tarot evil spirit Queerness leaves a mark One day, you too like me One day, you too, like me You too, will be, like me One day, you too, like me Change -...

For children growing up in Everton, Liverpool in the 1960's, conditions were poor. Parents struggled financially in a grey world. Row upon row of dark, damp terraces houses stretched from the hill to the docks. Wildlife was scarce, except for pigeons, starlings and stray dogs. However,...

Rhubard is common in cooking or baking. It is easy to recognise with its iconic coloured stem, normally in red, pink, green and white. And its leaves grow large, like umbrellas covering stems and the soik underneath. Besides that, those leaves act like solar panels,...

When I went into the garden after your introductory talk I was immediately struck by a bush I saw opposite the church door. I felt I must take photographs of it. I reconised it from seeing one in my parents' garden in West Kirby and in...

'Losing and Remembering' is a project that uses my recently deceased grandfather's photographic archive to show the mental effects of dementia.  My grandfather was diagnosed with dementia three years before he died from the disease.  During those three years, his memory rapidly declined, and his...

The vision for this collection is to share a message of hope and caring for the nature that surrounds us. I feel in an ever changing world, nature is a valuable source for helping people through challenging times. I find from talking to different people,...

I feel like everyone shares the need and urge to explore; we all feel it differently. I feel the need to explore a lot more digitally then I do in the real world, and that is what I am showcasing in these photographs. They’re not...

My brother found out by a complete accident because my original volunteer space got really toxic, so I found out about this and then I just never stopped because I love gardening originally but I never had a place to do it or a care...

I’ve been coming here for one and half years. My friends and I all came together. I had no experience before. I enjoy being here because I have made friends and come with my friends. I feel that the things I am learning here are...

I went to Greenham Common and that is nature in me. I feel good. I do reiki and have a load of other hobbies. I’m an activist. I’m political and go to loads of demonstrations. I’ve always been involved with nature and community spaces. I...

They used to have lunch and one of the ladies said ‘do you want to come in?’ I said ‘Yes, I’ll come in, what are you doing?’ and ever since I’ve been coming. And I like gardening; I’ve got a garden of my own but...

It's something I've always been passionate about doing: The community and trying to teach people the value of growing your own, people who are in isolation. There's a lot of reasons why. Knowing where your food has come from, growing it from seed, looking after...

Originally, it was my mum and dad who got me started. We always had a garden. My mums from a farming background in Wales and my dad likes gardening too. So my memories of being a little girl were mainly in the garden watching my...

I went to Zimbabwe for 6 years doing EOS. Teaching secondary maths, science and a little bit of English, and lived in a home which had no electricity or running water. I met my wife about 5 years in. I finished and went home and...

I think I’ve been here maybe since May of 2021, just last year. Not yet one year. My sister was walking through Everton Park one day, I think maybe John invited her to take a look in the community garden. My sister brought me here...

I used to go to John Archer Hall first, I retired from work so I just wanted something to fill in a few days. I did have a part-time job. I just went there. By the side of John Archer Hall there's a garden there,...

I suppose it's just the fact that its people coming together and trying to work on more than just growing veg, but also making community and meeting new people and providing an opportunity for everyone. It also provides me with an opportunity to do my...

I love gardening. I’m a follower not a leader. Don't ask me any gardening questions because I wouldn’t be able to answer. I just say to Hil, “what do you want me to do?” And away I go. I’m 70. I’m my husband's carer. I’ve...

Places like this are lifelines because of the dangers like agricultural collapse through climate change and economic circumstances. We’re learning about how to grow things and some people will be forced to dig up their lawns at home and we can help them. If we...

I became unemployed and I had a child that was grieving and I took her out of school and we looked for things to do and we found North Park. We just jumped into that and my kid enjoyed all the learning parts of it....

I started coming to Sudley 4 years ago because I had a stroke and then obviously I couldn't do any work or anything. And then I found this through the brain charity and it's been a godsend. Otherwise, I’d just be in the house cooped...

I’ve been a gardener since I came to Liverpool in 2016. I volunteer and I like the job because its like exercise, it makes you active and it's also good to grow something and somebody benefits from it. You’re not the only people but others...

We’re using a derelict space that has been restored, which is important, and it's a peaceful place to come to escape. In the summer it's like a country allotment to me, not like a country garden but very much although in the middle of the...

I’m tired. I love the outdoors and I love experimenting with plants. I enjoy crafts and do a lot of walking with the dog. I do like a bit of photography and I’ve started wine making. Not yet with the fruits from here. I make...

Cities and towns need more stuff like this. Instead of just looking at buildings and roads and airports, community gardens are great because you can just come, chill, relax, do stuff that you enjoy. It gets you out of the house. It's better than sitting...

It's a social justice issue about people's access to good food. Just because we’re in Bootle and not somewhere leafy, it isn't that people in Bootle just deserve less because the area is not as…its an equalities issue. Climate change is massive, and it wasn't...

I was doing nothing anyway, I just moved in further down the road. I live on the same road as Squash. So I had just moved in and there was nothing to do. I did charity shops. A leaflet came through the door advertising for...

  MUG TREE, FAZAKERLEY   Despite it looking as though it was made from lack of cupboard space, it is a tree belonging to a man I once knew briefly who took up the hobby - as well as other oddball house decorations - due to loneliness after...

A reflection on the enduring human ability to process change. How do we resolve the loss of a future we thought would always be there? What do we do when the threads that tied us to our history and our future are broken? Throughout our lives relationships...

Though I've been living in Liverpool for 13 years I've never called the city home. Born and raised in rural Northern Ireland, the March 2020 lockdown saw me isolating alone, and as weeks of solitude turned to months I began to question where I truly...

Before lockdown my statement was very simple and direct. “To spend time in beautiful places with beautiful people with a camera capturing the sights that intrigued me.”   When access to the outside world became difficult due to lockdown I had to change my approach to capturing...

I found myself struggling with difficult emotions during the months of lockdown and I turned to photography to help me process my thoughts and feelings.   My prominent feeling was sadness – I felt grief for those directly affected by illness and loss, with anxiety and sorrow...

Since I joined Clickmoor Camera Group 18 months ago, I have learned just how Diverse and enjoyable photography can be . Whether it is a natural, spontaneous or staged Event . While involved in some projects with the group, I started using natural and imitation lighting...
