Event description

Description

Join photographer Alan McFetridge in celebrating the publication of his new photobook, On the Line, and the opening of his exhibition, Dead End, in Kinokuniya's Wedge Gallery.

For his first solo exhibition at Wedge Gallery, Dead End, Alan McFetridge culminates work from his research project on fire ecology shot across Australia and Canada. A hauntingly beautiful array of large-scale photographs and camera-less photograms creates an acute awareness of fossil fuels danger to social, economic and political stability.

In these new works, which includes his latest photobook, On the Line, McFetridge moves from a distant overview of aftermath to make contact with fire itself. On The Line refers to an ecological frontier. A battle line descibed by a typology of burnt standing trees from a climate heating event in the boreal forest. This book cements McFetridge’s purpose to explain the urgency for political will to balance humans effect on the rest of nature.

Funded in part by the Environmental Awareness Bursary from the Royal Photography Society.

5.30pm arrivals for 6pm start.
