BirdHouse Collective - A work in progress

BirdHouse Collective – A Work in Progress
BirdHouse Collective was formed to provide a platform for a group of photographic artists to discuss, experiment with and on occasions to exhibit new work.
During Lockdown and the restrictions and uncertainty that has ensued from this we have begun to experiment with the idea of the ‘Virtual Exhibition’. Our first exhibition displayed in this way was ‘Looking Out’ and included the responses of 10 members of the collective, responding to the strange and traumatic situation we all found our selves in. This exhibition was opened in collaboration with Moray Culture Café and work can still be viewed on their social media @culturecafemoray and through http://birdhouse.place.
This is the second virtual exhibition from the group and includes work from Rob Stephen, John Ferguson and Chris Bird.
Sometimes the theme of the exhibition suggests itself but this time we all felt that although we wouldn’t be able to show completed bodies of work, we could at least show some personal projects that are ‘A Work in Progress’
I wouldn’t want to guess at the collective age of the 3 photographers involved with this exhibition but not only do the photographs represent ‘Works in Progress’ but so do we.
The work on show represents both our current concerns as artists /photographers and seems also to be a reflection on our past.
Rob Stephens’ exhibition ‘Scanning the Past’ is a process of looking back through images made in the past re-evaluating perhaps finding new meaning and importance in during the process.
John Fergusons’ 2 projects’ ‘Down by the River’ based on John’s local excursions through lockdown and ’Erased’ revisiting places from his past as a way of looking at and commenting on current political concerns.
Chris Birds’ two strands to the work are a continuing fascination with Pinhole photography and recent attempts to understand the intricacies of large format photography.
