Land Loss

Max Miechowski’s Land Loss follows the artist’s deep interest in the British landscape, exploring themes of time, community, and resilience. These absorbing portraits, landscapes and delicate details are captured with Miechowski’s characteristic sensitivity, presenting a quiet space of contemplation.

In the work, natural cycles, and geological erosion act as gentle and sometimes abrupt reminders of loss and impermanence. As Miechowski learns by observing this seaside community, “we too are as temporary as the cliffs”. At a time of social and ecological upheaval, Land Loss reconnects us to the environment, and creates an extended metaphor where great uncertainty, compassion and care is carried by the landscape. Recalling his experience of visiting, photographing and witnessing this changing community.

Max Miechowski, represented by Open Doors Gallery, won the Photo London x Nikon Emerging Photographer Award 2022 with his series Land Loss.
