In The Link, West Downs Campus: Sea Fever by David Baker
11 MAY - 15 JUNE 2015
We are frequently drawn to the flow of the sea and the ever changing landscape of shore, sea and sky. Coastal landscapes may often offer a simple geography of a beach, the sea and a cloudscape and as such there is a challenge to construct new and inventive photographic interpretations. Sea Fever is David Baker's interpretation of those seascapes and of the close affinity between sea and sky.
David Baker is a seascape and forest photographer based in Southampton and has exhibited around the country. In January 2013 he was named Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2012. His first book 'Seafever' ,which concentrates on the power and energy of the sea, was published in December 2013. The photographic project 'Ridge Trees' centres on the New Forest, Hampshire and is defined by dawn, mist and location.

In The Stripe, King Alfred Campus: 30 Years On by Brian Neish
5 MAY - 16 JUNE 2015
Thirty years ago Brian Neish graduated in Art and Education from King Alfred’s College. In 2010, after a successful career in education, he decided to take up the challenge of becoming a full-time professional artist, something he had dreamt about all those years ago while painting in the college’s Art Department at the University's Medecroft building. In a short space of time he has achieved great success, showing his work in Europe and the United States. This exhibition shows a selection of paintings from this early stage in his new career.

Behind the catwalk (no smoke and no mirrors) by Neil Buchan Grant
In collaboration with Winchester Fashion Week
21 March to 5 May 2015
In 2014, British Travel Press Photographer of the Year Neil Buchan Grant was invited by the soon-to-be President of Romania to take part in the 'Be Creative' festival of fashion and photography in Sibiu, Transylvania. Between running workshops and exhibiting his work, Neil was given unprecedented access backstage at two fashion shows, held in the 17th-century Brukenthall Palace. The opportunity to capture something unique quickly became apparent.
"Great to see a gently lit unobtrusive approach to fashion, illustrating the back stage scene so eloquently." Ian Berry, Magnum Photographer
