What’s on Soon

Navigate by Paul Thompson – on now and until 17 May

British artist Paul Thompson has spent the past three years photographing navigation markers on the shores of Britain. These markers are often overlooked by beachgoers and Thompson admits to walking past them hundreds of times without paying them any attention. The pictures are taken at sunset, using a large format film camera, with exposure times ranging between one and eight seconds.
