Human Stories

Human Stories


People and spaces are at the heart of this joint photography exhibition.

Axel Hesslenberg’s subjects embrace the new, open space on Eastbourne’s Pier. When the old amusement arcade was not rebuilt after the fire, a new wooden decking gave residents and visitors the opportunity to stroll onto the pier, sit and chat like on a Mediterranean plaza. Some alone in their own thoughts, others in groups, all walks of life, a peaceful congregation of everyone. While the fire was tragic, the restauration created a space to breath. Axel photographs for the Charleston Trust near Firle.

Mark Nelson also examines the life of everyday people in their environment, with an air of mystery surrounding each image. From the man alone with a briefcase, slowly making his way home at New York’s Grand Central Station to four girls in Havanna, captured in an impressionistic style on a Summer’s evening. Mark will also be showing his short film Berlin: Alexanderplatz, inspired by the Herman Hesse poem ‘Stufen’. Mark is a Brighton based photographer and filmmaker and founder of First Light Studios over 30 years ago.

Both photographers will give artists talks and the dates will be communicated via the Devonshire Collective website and Twitter.

More information about the origin and aims of the Devonshire Collective can be found on their website.
