Bill Hunt

W.M. Hunt has been collecting, looking at and talking about photography for over 40 years.  He has been with Prof. Griffin in a number of hell holes - Arles, Bologna, London.  He calls W.M “William”, and he quite likes that.  He usually answers to “Bill”.  Harry M. Stevens, his great grandfather, came from Derby.  He invented the hot dog.  It probably won’t come up. (Image © Ethan Hill)

Barnard’s photographic and film practice discusses real events, embracing complex visual strategies that utilize both traditional techniques with more contemporary forms of representation. She connects her interest in aesthetics, current photographic debates around materiality and the existing political climate. Her current focus is the relationship between the military industrial complex, new technology, and the psychological implication of conflict. She is a Senior Lecturer on Documentary Photography at The University of South Wales and has two publications with GOST, Chateau Despair, published in 2012 and Machines in the Garden, Hyenas of the Battlefield published in 2014.

Born UK, 1959, Mark Power turned to photography after leaving art school and worked in the editorial and charity markets for nearly ten years before he began teaching in 1992. This coincided with a shift towards long-term, self-initiated projects which sit comfortably alongside a number of large-scale commissions in the industrial sector. He has published eight books, and his prints have been shown in numerous galleries and museums across the world, and are in several important collections, both public and private.
