A photographic walk through Brexit land

Ian Land has produced a formidable body of landscapes, shaped and formed by us, the British. He decided to take his camera for a walk – the coastal route from Hastings to London – and the results are now on display in an exhibition at Hastings Arts Forum. It is a desolate, gloomy marginal area – the end of England. And so it appears to be turning out, for those born and bred here who feel European and want to remain so. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was impressed by the exhibition’s unflinching honesty; sometimes to the point where you want to look away as he captures the spirit of England – and it isn’t a very edifying sight.

Ken Russell’s Girls Will Be Boys, Boys Will Be Girls

Ken Russell was a notorious film-maker, for the big and the small screen. He always delivered surprises. He is mainly remembered for his exuberant, extravagant, excessive films. But that was later. And that sometimes tends to obscure the talent, technique and originality of his work. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to see some of his early work, his exploration of teddy girls photographed in the east end of London: Girls Will Be Boys, Boys Will Be Girls. The exhibition also features work by the less well-known Alan Vines.
