Thomas Joshua Cooper, Matt Stokes: this weeks new exhibitions

From Thomas Joshua Cooper in Edinburgh to Matt Stokes in Sheffield, Robert Clark finds out whats happening in art around the country

If we need any proof that the rhythmic wildness of the landscape still exists and its essential otherness from the electronic networks of the workaday world, then we need look no further than Thomas Joshua Coopers photographs. While the California-born artists usual subject matter tends to be uncharted wildernesses, here his recent series Scattered Waters: Sources Streams is described as his love letter to Scotland and takes a close-up look at the waterways of his adopted home, where he is the founding head of photography at Glasgow School Of Art. Working in moody monochrome, using large-scale negatives with an unwieldy 19th-century field camera and painstakingly printing each photograph by hand, Cooper achieves a quite amazing atmospheric resonance and clarity of detail with these antiquated techniques. There is something timeless about these images, yet they are also utterly up-to-the-moment recognitions of the essential sadness of ephemeral presence.

Thats me in the picture: Major Terri Gurrola embraces her daughter on her return from service in Iraq

Even now, looking at the picture brings tears to my eyes. It shows the true emotion of what we military parents go through

Leaving my daughter behind is the hardest thing Ive ever had to do. She was two when I began a year-long deployment in Iraq in 2007. She was going to turn three while I was away, and I wouldnt even be able to see her on her birthday this was in the days before internet video calls. My biggest fear was that she would forget who I was.

I can remember this moment as if it happened yesterday. It was 11 September 2007, and I was flying into Atlanta from Iraq for my mid-tour break: after two weeks, Id have to turn around and leave Gaby behind again. I was a captain then a military doctor, which I still am and Id been stationed in a place called FOB (forward observation base) Hammer. Being out there was difficult not only because I was missing my daughter terribly, but because I was the only woman in the entire battalion.

Tiny art: how Slinkachu makes his miniature street scenes

The artist creates installations using train set figures and street props. Heres his guide to making and photographing them

This article is a preview from the October issue of Do Something, the Guardians monthly hobbies and activities magazine, free with the paper this Saturday

I started making miniature street installations in 2006. I was working at an advertising agency and wanted a creative project outside my day job; I had the idea to leave miniature train set figures around London for people to discover, as a way of encouraging interaction with the city. When people think of urban art they often think of graffiti, but I hope that my work will make you rethink what is possible, and perhaps fire your creativity, too.
