the Photographers - Visual Poems from the White Hour
Guided by the poems of Sappho and the limitations of 35mm Artistamp, Box Brownie Pinhole and Analogue Film the Photographers describe a 4 month, 11,000 mile journey from the shores of the Meditteranean to those of Lake Ontario, from the ancient Greek Agora to downtown Toronto and from the wide open Cumbrian landscapes beloved of the great Romantics to intimate spaces shared with friends, family and lovers.
During the summer of 2012 I spent 6 weeks camping on Darnet Island in the Medway Estuary, and canoeing the inner and outer Estuary. I lived partly off the food I found there and recorded life with a variety of means including a pinhole camera made from driftwood. A book has been produced detailing the project.

"The Energy that comes from reducing a scene or experience to its raw bones is captivating, and David Wise has it down to an art."
