Fay Godwin

Landmarks – A Survey

The first major retrospective of renowned photographer, Fay Goodwin, showcasing her striking landscapes and documentary images, interspersed with the poetry her photographs have inspired. 

Including insightful portraits of writers and poets, black and white landscapes and colour documentary images of Bradford, this exhibition offered a comprehensive overview of one of Britain’s most respected photographers.

Using natural light to photograph writers and poets, often in their own homes, Fay Godwin’s literary portraits radiate a genuine intimacy and warmth. Her keen observations of our relationship with nature are humorous and tragic in turn. Surreal images of horses and telephone boxes are counterbalanced by achingly beautiful images of land laid waste by man. Godwin’s glorious colour work shows the nature we think we know as really exotic and unknown. 

Godwin brings a compassionate and considered gaze to all she photographs, leaving the viewer with memorable and thought provoking images.
