MA Publication Text

Text about my work in the MA Publication:

Paul Kemp’s photographs of Green Belt Surrey gardens and parks present us with a landscape permeated with melancholy and a sense of entropy and inertia. An impoverished nature is framed for us by garden walls and park railings; benches are positioned to look out onto scrubby lines of trees and waste paper bins; roads are lined by dishevelled hedges and unkempt verges. This is the world we live in that we so often fail to see.
