The Country Life series, curated by Val Williams, invited artists to respond to the George Garland Collection, archived at the West Sussex County Records Office. Garland made thousands of photographs from his studio in Petworth of the rural England that he knew would soon disappear.
The third commission in the series, David Johnston has for many years made photographs during walks through the West Sussex countryside. His work constitutes a private archive of thousands of images, a personal and highly detailed account of seasonal and social change across a specific rural landscape. Diptychs and triptychs testify to Johnston’s intense observation as he returns again and again to the same area.
