This was an exhibition of work by William Colwell, Ken Grant, Jennie Spiers Grant and myself. Spiers Grant wrote about the exhibition 

 

'The oblique ornithology of the title reflects an unorthodox view of the study of birds. A journey in May by Bill Colwell and Jennie Spiers Grant to Staple Island and the Inner Farne here in Northumberland met the Arctic Tern in a rare moment of pause in its continuous polar journeying. Flight observations through film and tracking of Sterna on the river Wear intersect with the Global.

Sterna

From Upper Coquetdale to the Border Ridge (the series of six small images which, together, form the long horizontal work you can see here) comes from a Northumbrian suite of pictures that I am periodically working on (and which all the pictures in this show are taken from). In this piece I use the names of flora and fauna to ‘map’ my journey. Some plants will only be found in the valleys whilst others will be specific to the upland moors.
