Landmarks celebrates the work of Fay Godwin, one of the UKs most respected and influential photographers. Drawing on the whole body of her photographic practice, it includes literary portraits, humorous snapshots, and rural and urban landscapes, as well as the intimate series of color images, Glassworks, that marks the most recent evolution of her vision. Leading poet and novelist, Simon Armitage introduces the work, and an essay by photographic historian Roger Taylor explores and illuminates both her career and her approach to photography.
Godwins early work includes a significant body of intimate and revealing literary portraits of writers and poets including Philip Larkin, Saul Bellow, Robert Lowell, Salman Rushdie, Günter Grass and Ted Hughes, with whom she later worked collaboratively on the book Elmet, a dialogue between poet and photographer.
