Landscape Collective UK consists of 14 landscape photographers and we meet every two months to show printed work and discuss landscape photography.
David Baker has been successful in securing a £9.9k Arts Council grant for the non-selling exhibition of his Common Ground project for a four month period from December 2017 in the Southampton City Art Gallery.
Common Ground is a three-year photographic project centred on Southampton Common that artistically interprets a landscape that has been shaped by human activity through management of the space. The project shows a commonly used city resource and explores the intersection between the man-made and the managed natural resources. One of the project’s aims is to enable the audience to develop their own relationship with the Common.
Between Sea and Forest – A new exhibition by David Baker at the Red House Museum, Christchurch, Dorset from 23 July – 20 August 2016.
As a development of the long term Ridge Trees project that concentrates on a specific area of the New Forest, I have taken the forms, textures and attributes of the sea into this work. Bracken is seen as tumbling surf, fallen trees as crashing waves, and the deep blues and greens of a winter morning echo the colour of the deep cold sea.
David Baker has the front cover on the August 2016 issue of Outdoor Photography in addition to an eight page article exploring what the sea means to him, how he interprets it, how it is used as a sounding board and to hopefully provide inspiration for others to engage with the sea in their own personal way to tell new stories.
David Baker’s Waves II has been selected for exhibition at the 2016 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. The Summer Exhibition runs from 13 June to 21 August 2016.

Some pics from the LCUK meeting on the 8th May 2016.
This month has been unparalleled regarding coverage of founder member Tony Worobiec in national photographic magazines; he has featured in no less than 7! While 6 of them did very generous features of his and Eva’s new book “Abandoned on the Plains”, he was also invited to do an article on photographing in the rain for “Amateur Photographer”, one on “composition” for “Digital Camera” and a very recent article in “Professional Photo” on how to get your work published in book form. Eva suggested the front door is widened just to get his head through! 🙂
Landscape Editions Volume Two features David Baker’s Ridge Trees project which concentrates on a specific area of the New Forest, Hampshire. Pre-orders of Landscape Editions Volume Two (with 6 postcard prints) can be made with Kozu Books
