Julian Wakeling

"I was born in Sunderland and attended Lincoln College of Art and Central St Martins. I studied graphic design and photography but have never been professional in either field. I have variously worked for the Post Office, the National Gallery and been a cycle courier. I used to make postcard art and have produced house music records. Last year I won the Fitzrovia Photography Prize at the Diemar-Noble Gallery. My street photography project is ongoing. I take photographs every day."

Aleksandra Wojcik

'Being influenced by Whistler and Turner paintings I decided to document the Thames River. I travelled from the source to the sea capturing different places found by the river.
As England became my home, I wanted to share with the viewer my river . 'The River Song' (2010-2012) is both the landscape and personal project.

When photographing Thames in London I've been walking my paths but there is still an element of exploration while photographing outside the capital. Working on this project made me aware of the land and its identity.
I became curious: is it the river song that became mine or was it my song that became the river song? It also made me think what can we call today the British art as it is influenced by the international artists (and international artists are influenced by British culture).'
