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.
We are pleased to announce a new members exhibition at our gallery space in the Mercure Bolton Georgian House. Andrew Auty’s exhibition is of landscape photography and Andrew describes the exhibition like this:
This exhibition is about trees and the spaces they occupy in the landscape. In this exhibition, I have featured some of the magnificent places that trees are privileged to occupy. In some images, prominence is given to a single tree or a group of trees, in others the main focus is on the space around them.
This exhibition explores the parallel and intersecting paths of these two great artists of the 20th century.
The photographer Bill Brandt and the sculptor Henry Moore first met during the Second World War, when they both created images of civilians sheltering from the Blitz in the London Underground.
This major exhibition brings together over 200 works highlighting the relationships between sculpture, photography, drawing and collage revealed through Brandt and Moore’s shared interests in the subjects and themes of labour, society, industry, the British landscape and the human body. Moore’s celebrated Reclining Figure sculptures and Brandt’s well-known photographs of coal miners and their families in Durham and Yorkshire are on display, alongside rare original colour transparencies by Brandt, and Moore’s little-known photo collages.
