Callum Colson BA (Hons) Photography

Callum Colson

Callum’s latest work ‘Loose Ground’ is an attempt at communicating his experience with mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic and his final year at University using the medium of Photography. Through exploring the natural landscape, he has found that it can serve as a place of solitude, reflection and withdrawal from present life.

However, he finds this serenity tainted by the very landscape he shelters in. Ominous formations needle at the skin, injecting feelings of isolation, claustrophobia and anxiety back into his psyche. By photographing these formations, he confronts these feelings with the intention of understanding and extinguishing them.
