Jo Metson Scott Prints
By Andrew Edwards, 27 January 2017
Jo Metson Scott asked us if we could print and mount some of her photographs for a charity auction for Webber Represents, and also an exhibition at the Argentea Gallery in Birmingham.
"And Then" is a collaborative project between photographer Jo Metson Scott and artist/set designer Nicola Yeoman, it first started in 2006 when they created a displaced pirate ship crashing through the woodland. This later developed into an ongoing series over the following years of reverie like photographs. Exploring notions of childlike fantasies, escapism and Neverland make-believe worlds the images capture elaborate dens and temporary spaces which exist for only a small time, using a few props, found items or the fauna around the locale.
These prints are a part of a group exhibition called "Fertile Ground" the first in what's going to be an annual exhibition to highlight Birmingham and the wider Midlands area as a place of abundant creative potential and production.
We also printed and mounted the photograph above for a special auction with her agency Webber Represents.
