A photographic meditation on the hinterland of Sussex

How connected are we to our local landscapes? How can an essence of a place be captured?

A new series of photographic, video- and sound-based landscape studies by artist-photographer Simon Roberts explores these questions as he journeys on foot through the wild and secluded hinterland of West Sussex. He will focus on those locations surrounding Petworth where British painter Ivon Hitchens loved to paint, connecting with the subject of the gallery’s headline summer exhibition whilst following in the footsteps of one of Britain’s most admired modern landscape painters.
