Jim Elston

The Pears
Resident artist

Jim is interested in environmental issues, the effects of deforestation, urban forestation and the relationship between people and place. Working across digital and analogue photography, his experimental images depict familiar environments in unfamiliar ways, challenging the way we perceive the world around us.

“My final major project at Solent University, ‘Dark Skies and Biospheres’, explores at the relevance of the Isle of Wight achieving ‘UNESCO Biosphere Reserve’ status and the Island’s current bid to become accredited as a Dark Sky reserve.”
