In Land/Sea Mike Perry focused our attention on the growing environmental crisis at home.

This powerful exhibition of landscape photography challenged conventional ways of seeing our coastline and countryside, and opens our eyes to society’s broken relationship with the natural world. Perry’s work sparks conversation about how to restore healthy ecosystems and bring back a wilder landscape.

St. Monica’s Primary School Project

In the Autumn Term of 2021, Ffotogallery worked with the children of St. Monica’s Primary School in Cathays, Cardiff, to investigate the effects of pollution on our local beaches in South Wales. The St Monica Primary School project was inspired by artist Mike Perry’s work, his exhibition Land/Sea, and particularly Perry’s Môr Plastig body of work.
