Simon Skinner - 6 years ago

David Magee will present his first public exhibition of landscape and seascape photographs at Herrick Gallery this February. The exhibition showcases a retrospective body of work spanning twenty-five years and will coincide with the release of his limited edition book Outside, published by Concentric Editions

With just 500 copies being produced worldwide, the limited-edition book is hand-numbered and signed by the artist and includes a foreword by Academy-Award winning director Terry George and an interview with Dr Collete Nolan This beautifully printed and meticulously produced book presents an overview of David’s approach to landscape photography consisting of forty-seven plates, painstakingly selected from an extensive, 25-year archive. Outside is a gallery in itself with a collection of images that encapsulate the essence of his atmospheric photography.

Outside by David Magee

The elements, earth, water and air, and where the land and sea meet the sky, are the recurring themes that Magee works with.  However, it is the composition and the combinations of light, tone and movement, as well as the passage of time captured through extended exposures that create the atmosphere that set his photographs apart.

In my photographs, there is no real sense of time or of a specific place. The location is totally secondary to the feeling. The feeling is everything.
