Members Exhibition at the Mercure Bolton Hotel – John Barton


It’s been a while due to lockdown, but we are pleased to announce that we have a new members exhibition on show at our exhibition space at the Mercure Georgian House Hotel in Bolton.

John has specialised in monochrome photography for over 50 years. In that time his main interest has been in photographing the natural landscape and smaller natural objects. He has been drawn to the wilder landscape and less populated areas which can sometimes appear to have little immediate attraction. Closer inspection often shows that even the most unpromising subject can reveal an unexpected power and beauty.

Using monochrome materials or converting a digital image to monochrome enables the photographer to emphasise the drama of light, shade and form in the subject.

As well as Lancashire Monochrome, John is a member of the Yorkshire Monochrome Group and Accrington Camera Club.
