Covered & Exposed

Ben Bird, Paul Sebastian Smith, Tom Warland

8–9 October

Three photographers - Ben Bird, Paul Sebastian Smith and Tom Warland - are exhibiting work at The Dukebox, Hove for their show Covered & Exposed. The imagery focuses on the violence and mortality hidden within the landscape. Despite their different approaches their photographic work has a synergy in both using traditional photographic film stock and exposing the familiar world around them in an unfamiliar way.
Private View: 7-10pm, Friday 7th October.

Accessibility: This venue is accessible for wheelchair users
