What role can contemporary photographic practices play in reflecting the issues of our time? FUTURELAND NOW is an exhibition of the photography of John Kippin and Chris Wainwright which will address key issues in our current society whilst reflecting on the unresolved issues of the past. The world recession and banking crisis has created a loss of job stability with the possibility of potentially seismic change. The large scale photographic landscapes of Kippin and Wainwright invoke the language of the sublime to explore this postmodern period of uncertainty and change.
