Simon Warner Photographer

Simon Warner

As photographer and filmmaker I am interested in landscape and environmental change. I have created a number of exhibitions looking at rivers and coastlines, and I worked with the late Professor Jay Appleton on a show exploring his Prospect-Refuge theory of landscape aesthetics.

A NESTA Fellowship enabled me to develop a parallel strand of work in performative lecturing, and I have delivered talks, walks and events on landscape history, early photography and 19th century visual culture.

I offer educational workshops in basic photography, video-making and silhouette drawing. My silhouette portrait workshop has run at diverse venues including Latitude Festival, Tate Modern, Harewood House and Burlington Arcade (for London Fashion Week). A companion photo-silhouette workshop visited the V&A for their Friday Late series.

I have co-curated exhibitions at South Square Gallery and the Brontë Parsonage Museum, and a Symposium on landscape and literature at BPM.

I am a co-founder of Whitestone Arts, a research base and producing company near Haworth.
