Simon Roberts: Inscapes

Pallant House Gallery commissioned Roberts to produce this new series of landscape studies, inspired by modern British painter Ivon Hitchens.

Roberts’ studies of the ‘hinterland’ of West Sussex accompany the largest exhibition on Hitchens in 30 years.

Inscapes acts as a photographic meditation on what it means to capture the essence of a place.

Through a series of photographic, video and sound-based landscape studies, Roberts explores how we experience familiar landscapes.

To complete the series he travelled on foot through the locations where Hitchens loved to paint.

Simon Roberts: Inscapes, Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, until October 13.
