SAM LAUGHLIN: FALLING WALL, RISING DUST
Feb
This is a work commissioned by John Hansard Gallery, which follows from the previous photographic project Sam Laughlin undertook around the construction of our new city centre home. This work was made to document and mark the demolition of the old John Hansard Gallery on the University of Southampton’s Highfield Campus.

John Hansard Gallery presents Seaside: Photographed, a major exhibition that examines the relationship between photographers, photography and the British seaside from the 1850s to present day.
 
Curated by Val Williams and Karen Shepherdson, the exhibition includes early photographic depictions of waves, picture postcards revelling in the glee and grime of British resorts, intimate shots of holiday and relaxation, reportage and the photo series of eminent photographers, presenting the seaside in a multitude of different visions and celebrating our special relationship with our coast.
