An immersive photographic exhibition by E M Campbell

Water Salad On Monday (part 2) will run from 17th November until 23rd December at Cafe Connect

Art prints and large poster prints from Water Salad On Monday can now be seen at Cafe Connect in Easton, a cafe staffed by volunteers with learning disabilities or those recovering from social exclusion - and the book will also be available here.  Bristol Reconnect, the founders of the cafe, builds bridges between people who face severe and multiple disadvantages, and the wider community such as homelessness, addictions, mental health problems, imprisonment and other challenges. Bristol Reconnect enables people to re-engage with their communities. Café Connect is a vibrant local cafe serving affordable, healthy, delicious food & drink sourcing its ingredients as ethically and locally as possible. 

The cafe exhibition is open Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 10 - 5, St Mark’s Road, Easton, Bristol, BS5. FREE ENTRY  

Blurring definitions of documentary and fable, the now available limited edition book captures poignant, hilarious and mesmerisingly mundane moments in tiny detail and vast emotion.   

Water Salad On Monday (part 1), the immersive photo show, will run from 28th September - 1st October at Elm Tree Farm

Water Salad on Monday is a series of beautiful black and white photographs that tenderly picks their way through the special natures that exists at Bristol's magical Elm Tree Farm - a farm that works with flora, fauna, volunteers, carers and adults with learning disabilities.  Esther was in situ for a year here to witness births and deaths, mud and blood, connection and community while clicking her battered old analogue camera.  Pasting photos to the grungy surfaces of the farm, the exhibition was a joyous treasure trail of sensory pleasure.  Beaming from the chicken-shed and barn, pinned up in the canteen, stored amongst the fruit and veg, photos pulled the public into all the farm's intimate places - holding still life for a single moment their living, breathing muses in resplendent early Autumn conditions.
