Photographer and professor of photography at American University of Sharjah, Mark Pilkington shows a series of work titled Soundings in Tashkeel. Pilkington has exhibited extensively both internationally, and regionally. Pilkington was also a selected finalist in Venice for the La Colomba International Art Prize.
This second solo show at Tashkeel features Mark Pilkington's latest photographic series from the Mediterranean island of Gozo, near Malta. Pilkington uses himself in the photographs, interacting and responding to the environment, inviting us to reflect on man’s relationship with his immediate surroundings.
‘I consider this new work to be about a form of personal confrontation, of sounding out what is there, there is something romantic about the encounter . . . The landscapes I use are grand places, quarries or where land meets sea, or amongst desolate wind sculpted cliffs.’
