Curated by Mark Durden, this exhibition looks at the relationship of Tom Wood to the landscape of Ireland, in particular rural County Mayo, the birthplace of the photographer.
Due to religious intolerance, his family was forced to leave the region in the 1950s and move to England. But summers were nearly always spent on family trips to Ireland and this exhibition is drawn from the extensive body of work Wood has made there, encompassing four decades and involving a range of photographic processes and formats, as well as video.
Born in 1951, Tom Wood is internationally renowned for his photographs in Liverpool and Merseyside from 1978–2001, “on the streets, in pubs and clubs, markets, workplaces, parks and football grounds” of “strangers, mixed with neighbours, family and friends”.
