In Vino Veritas
Wideyed Photography Collective
“Wideyed is a photography collective based in the North East of England. Founded in 2008 by Lucy Carolan, Richard Glynn and Louise Taylor, the group is dedicated to creating and curating works for exhibition and publication in the UK and beyond.”
In Vino Veritas is a collective project following organic wine production in France.
“Since ancient times, it’s been considered that wine reliably reveals a person’s character. For experimental natural wine producer François Blanchard, in vino veritas means remaining true to the character of the grape, respecting the integrity of this very complex fruit and skilfully drawing out its subtle aromas.
Each year the grapes are picked and pressed by hand and foot. The harvest is labour intensive, but also a festive event, with families, friends, musicians and artists from all around France and beyond coming together to make and celebrate wine.
Wideyed photographers Lucy Carolan, Richard Glynn and Louise Taylor took part in the 2010 and 2011 harvests as artists-in-residence at the Blanchard domaine of Château du Perron in the Touraine region of France. Their responses to the wine and way of life they experienced there have matured into In Vino Veritas.
The newsprint publication was produced to accompany the exhibition ‘In Vino Veritas’, first shown at ArtHouse, London May 2012 and subsequently at Espace Beaujon, for Mois de la Photo OFF, Paris November 2012.”
