Born in Ireland in 1951, Tom Wood is internationally renowned for his photographs of people. These were taken for the most part in Merseyside, where he lived from 1978 until 2003, when he moved to North Wales to concentrate full time on what he has referred to as “the matter of landscape”. Curated by Mark Durden, this exhibition looks at his relationship to the landscape of Ireland, in particular rural County Mayo. Due to religious intolerance, his family was forced to leave the region in the 1950s and move to England. But summers were nearly always spent on family trips to Ireland and this exhibition is drawn from the extensive body of work Wood has made there, encompassing four decades and involving a range of photographic processes and formats, as well as video.
