“Gun Nation” - the anatomy of a long-term project

Zed Nelson HonFRPS lives in London. His work has been published and exhibited worldwide.

Having gained recognition and major awards as a documentary photographer working in some of the most troubled areas of the world, Nelson has increasingly turned his focus on Western society, adopting an increasingly conceptual approach to reflect on contemporary social issues.

Gun Nation - a disturbing reflection on America’s deadly love affair with the gun - was Nelson’s seminal first book. The project has been awarded five major international photography prizes and is regarded by many as the definitive body of work on the subject.

Previous awards include the Visa d’Or, France; First Prize in World Press Photo Competition; and the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award, USA.

Nelson’s work has been exhibited at Tate Britain, the ICA and the National Portrait Gallery, and is in the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum.  Nelson has had solo shows in London, Stockholm and New York.

Trains, ‘Planes & Aircraft Carriers

Air-to-air photographic sorties with Lightnings, Nimrods, and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Avro Lancaster, the latest steam locomotives to grace the UK’s heritage and narrow-gauge railways, and, a memorable ‘cruise’ aboard HMS Illustrious in the Bristol Channel.  This presentation is definitely ‘boys and their toys!’

Gordon has visited us before, and his ‘slide’ presentations are always appreciated
