Sparks Through the Stubble is a new collection of photographs created for JAM on the Marsh. Shot through lockdown in Romney Marsh, often with an outsider’s perspective on closed venues, these intimate yet cinematic pictures offer fresh takes on familiar locations.
The exhibition takes its title from a line in Derek Jarman’s Modern Nature. The use of traditional analogue processes means these images represent real sparks of light captured on 35mm film amidst the endless shingle stubble of Dungeness and beyond.
Steve is an award-winning photographer, whose work has been featured in Joel Meyerowitz’s Masters of Photography series, Black + White Photography magazine, and more than a dozen exhibitions across the UK.
