Local photographers Paul Bullivant and Mic Warmington held an exhibition of their work at Hamilton House Gallery in Stokes Croft in June.

BACK2BACK showed a selection of photographs taken in varied locations from the streets of Bristol to work in more unfamiliar lands.

Although their work is complementary, both Mic and Paul share a reflective view of the world that can be simultaneously both humorous and profound and is also often tinged by a wistful sense of irony and mischievousness.

Mic exhibited poetic monochrome and striking abstract work alongside land and cityscape photography. His pictures show beautiful, flowing forms, often highlighting or abstracting the small details unnoticed in the environment. 

Paul is a documentary photographer who has a passionate interest in the best and the worst of the human condition. His photographs display a series of striking portraits of people in European countries referencing the sense of impending loss following the Brexit vote. 

Paul has been a resident of St Andrews for many years and was an early member of North Bristol Artists. He’s travelled widely and has completed many studies of people and places which he’s collated into photo books.
