In Conversation: Simon Roberts and W. M. Hunt

Camping with Sasha and Paval, Kamchatka, Far East Russia, from Motherland, 2004
To coincide with the exhibition Homeland, Flowers Gallery will host a special In Conversation event with exhibiting artist Simon Roberts, joined by photography curator and collector W.M Hunt.
Simon Roberts is known for his major bodies of work, We English, Pierdom, and Merrie Albion, which together comprise one of the most significant contemporary photographic studies of Britain since the new color documentary photography of the 1980s. His earlier series Motherland remains one of the most extensive, comprehensive photographic accounts of Russia by a Western photographer. Presented together in this exhibition, Homeland explores Roberts’ critical reflection on the relationship between contemporary national identity and place, and his ongoing investigation of what draws people together within a particular landscape.
