Uncanny Landscapes #3 - Roei Greenberg

July 30, 2020
An interview by Justin Hopper with photographer Roei Greenberg
 
Roei Greenberg is an London-based Israeli artist whose photographs explore borders and boundaries, whether they are the ‘hot’ political borders of his home on the Israel-Lebanon border, or the subtle, implicit boundaries of the English picturesque. We spoke about his projects English Encounters and Along the Break; about contested landscapes; and about the ghosts that haunt our places, fighting for the chance to be seen.

Uncanny Landscapes #1 - Angus Carlyle

Uncanny Landscapes #1 - Angus Carlyle

June 29, 2020

An interview by Justin Hopper with author and artist Angus Carlyle.

We spoke about his books of let’s-call-them-air-quotes-Nature-Writing that both reflect his lifelong love of the genre and some of the conflicts at its heart. About running through the downs at night. About nature writing and indices, and mental health, and hangovers, and about the dadaist bureaucracy through which he approaches the natural world.

There are a few technical glitches in these recordings. Please take these as they are - cracks, through which the light gets in.
