Oxford & Oxfordshire in paintings & photographs
Lots of local artists have responded to our requests for paintings and photographs of Oxfordshire. Sometimes these are precipitated, literally, by an event like snow or flooding, and sometimes they're not part of a series but organised by artist. From this index page you can click through to more info and pictures.
Lesli has sent us a great many photos over the years, and she has a sharp eye for composition and detail.
Paintings of Oxford by Ali Clements
Ali's bright colourful designs are instantly recognisable, and she has captured many different aspects of town and gown life.
Photos of Oxford by Jasmina Stirling
Jasmina plays with monochrome and colour to create haunting, evocative views of the city.
Oxford looks even more picturesque in the snow (except for the rude sculptures). So for anyone who's missed out on being here during a whiteout we present a whole variety of images by different people and from different snowfalls.
Warning: potentially offensive snow photos
We mentioned rude sculptures, and here they are. Beware if you're of a nervous disposition or easily offended. There's something that seems a little more innocent in rude sculptures if they're going to melt. But here, ironically, they're caputred for posterity.
