Some of the UK’s most innovative outdoor photographers exhibit their work at London’s MMX Gallery until 2 June.

Put on by Inside the Outside, a collective of image-makers working within the landscape genre who are inspired by John Muir, the exhibition includes work by John Blakemore, Chris Friel and Valda Bailey, amongst other distinguished photographers.


The works are united by a breaking away from the literal to the symbolic, with the artists intending to interpret the landscape rather than illustrate it. The result is a collection of expressive photographs that range in style, method and technique.

Inside the Outside was put together by Al Brydon, Stephen Segasby, Joseph Wright and Rob Hudson. The collective centre upon the John Muir quote: ‘I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay till sundown, for going out, was really going in.’
