James Hankey teaches on our Defining Practice course.

James' remarkable long-exposure photographs are taken at night and contain light trails made with a torch or burning paper across the landscapes of Cornwall and Southern England. Derived from a tradition of Land Art, with Richard Long the obvious precursor, James seeks to interact with the environment in a performative sense. His seductively beautiful works are essentially the record of an action in the landscape, and blur the boundary between artist and subject.
