Henry Woide and Vanessa Fairfax-Woods are a photographic duo who met whilst studying at Falmouth University for their Masters in Photography. Coming from different artistic backgrounds (Henry in landscape and architectural photography and Vanessa in conceptual and performative work) they find an unusual balance of ethereal beauty and absurdity. They create surreal worlds and characters that have a familiarity we can’t quite put our finger on. This sense of uncanny draws the viewer into their imagery. Inviting the viewer to join them in a new, slightly eerie narrative. They have been collaborating since September 2021.
