To mark the close of We Feed the World, Frome, from Friday 3rd September to Friday 10th September, prints by globally renowned photographers Tina Hillier, Sophie Gerrard, Martin Westlake, Holly Lynton, Nick Ballón, Laura Hynd, Kate Peters and Hannah Reyes Morales will be offered for sale online as part of a one-off print sale.
The photographs for sale have been specially selected by the curators of Frome arts venues Gallery at The Station and the Whittox Gallery, in collaboration with The Gaia Foundation. They will be available to buy online via Otter Prints, and visitors are encouraged to come and see the works for themselves in the galleries during their final week on show.
Frome-based photographer Tom Hull from Gallery at the Station and founder of Otter Prints said: “The sale selection reflects a diverse array of landscapes and cultures, styles and compositions, so we’re confident there’s something for everyone. Laura Hynd’s ethereal style captures the movement and vivid colours of wildflowers in Ibiza, whilst Nick Ballón captures big, bold landscapes with dramatic light streaming across the Andean mountains in Bolivia. There are also some of the best-loved portraits from the show available.”
Sarah Robson, curator of The Whittox Gallery added “visitors to the exhibition have loved Martin Westlake’s Indonesia landscapes and portraits of the ladies cultivating indigenous sorghum, so it’s great to be able to offer these for sale. For anyone looking for a collectors’ piece, we also have signed and framed black and white prints by the legendary Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. And even if you can’t buy, come and enjoy all of the works in our final week.”
Rowan Phillimore from The Gaia Foundation said: “We wanted to give visitors a chance to take a piece of We Feed the World home with them because these stunning works and the regenerative farming that they celebrate really should be enjoyed and shared. Some of the proceeds of the print sales go to support our work globally with smallholder farmers and fisherfolk, so we’re delighted to be collaborating with the Frome galleries to make the prints available. This is the first time ever that they have been available for sale. There are also postcards and tote bags for anyone looking for a smaller gift item as a means to support our work.”
We Feed the World is a global photographic exhibition sharing stories of smallholder farmers and fisherfolk from 50 farming communities across six continents. It was originally curated by Cheryl Newman for The Gaia Foundation. The exhibition featuring the works of 47 global photographers runs until Friday 10th September at the Gallery at The Station and the Whittox Gallery, Frome. www.wefeedtheworld.org
