Andrew Ross - a UK whare
The England photos managed to meet the tough Photospace Gallery criteria for travel photographs: If your photographs fall into the general categories of Travel, Scenic Landscape, or Close-ups of Nature, they will have to be extraordinarily good to merit an exhibition! (And it is perhaps worth mentioning that similar sets of photographs taken in the US and Canada by the same photographer did not meet the criteria.)
The photos, taken squarely (pardon the photographic pun) in this century, look like something out of a bygone era - actually, but not strangely, like most of Andrew Ross's photographs. The rural landscapes, in particular, look like scenes Beatrix Potter would have drawn inspiration from. He has an eye for the past existing in the present, for sure; but in these England photos the scenery and buildings would seem to have a stable enough future. By contrast, his photos taken in New Zealand capture the more fragile and less protected history of this much younger country. The wrecking ball is too often swinging in from just outside the frame.
I won't repeat the extraordinary story behind this Maori building coming to be in Surrey, as its history can be found here on the National Trust site, in this Wikipedia article, and elsewhere.
