About Hazel Simcox
My most recent practice focuses on the environment and the individual experience of engaging with a rural landscape. My photography translates my experience of walking. The contents of my bookcase have become my mountain guide. I react to the voices of these explorers, through bringing together my photographic imagery and the re-appropriation of literature. I am a recent participant in the East Meets West Photography Masterclasses, organised by GRAIN and Format Festival. Through this experience, my project ‘Space ----- My ----‘ was developed and recently exhibited as part of Format Festival. Alongside, I am a full-time lecturer at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College, and a passionate researcher and writer. I am a regular contributor to the online magazine Photomonitor.
