Josh Murfitt studied BA Photography at Anglia Ruskin University. He currently works as a professional photographer in the arts and cultural heritage sector. As an artist he is inspired by the landscapes of the north and the changing atmospheric conditions of the natural environment. He draws influence and inspiration from travels to remote parts of the UK and Ireland in search of lonely, undeveloped landscapes. This project came about from an invitation to join a group of ornithologists working on a remote, uninhabited island in the Shetlands, off the far-north coast of Scotland. For nearly two weeks they camped on the island without electricity, hot running water or wifi connections. During this time he observed the way local wildlife live according to changes in atmospheric conditions, and saw how they rely on the environment, as well as each other, to survive. The resulting series explores themes of isolation and the transient atmospheric states of an environment which is continually changing. This exhibition invites the audience to consider the meditative sensory experience of the great outdoors, through a series of atmospheric photographs depicting the land, sea and sky of the Shetland Islands.
