Don’t miss the private view of photographer Nick Rochowski’s latest exhibition which opens this evening at 6:30pm at 60 Threadneedle Street, London, EC2R 8HP.
The Liminal Points Project is a collaborative project with Greg Haynes that re-explores both Penn Wood, Buckinghamshire and a journey of disconnection from the day-to-day, back to a vivid childhood fantasy.
Nick Rochowski’s practice involves extensive observation and explorative research of either a historical or changing landscape, built environment or interior space. Working at dawn, dusk and night blending natural and constructed lighting techniques in conjunction with elements from the landscape, the betwixt, large-scale images lie in a place that is somewhere between realities, as if you have stumbled upon a happening.
Through repeatedly visiting the same landscape over a period of 3 ½ half years, the scenes represent physical explorations of psychological experiences. There is a power nature holds when one is left alone with it and is something resonates in all people.
There will be a book produced by Rokov Publishing that will accompany the exhibition.

Forwards, Backwards and Forwards Again is the upcoming exhibition curated by a friend of RGB, photographer and videographer Tim Bowditch.
The exhibition will mark the third and final stage of the ‘Firedive’ project. Last year saw a special outdoor screening of the film about La Vallette pools, at Guernsey Swimming Club’s 125th Anniversary Floodlit Gala. Three London based artists were invited to the island to make new artwork in response to the film screening, the gala, and the bathing pools.
For Forwards, Backwards and Forwards Again, the artists David Angus, Sybella Perry and Theo Niderost present the work they made whilst on the island; including video, photography, and kinetic sculpture alongside Bowditch’s Firedive. The new work explores and celebrates the unique environment of Guernsey’s coast.
An all-in-one invite/gallery guide/poster has been produced especially for the show that includes an essay about the project written by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau and is accompanied by the image above created by Theo Niderost.
We were able to get one of these while they are available, however, if you would like your own simply email Tim on firstname.lastname@example.org with your address.
The exhibition will also run along side the Guernsey Photography Festival that looks to be well worth a visit.
