“Petalum” exhibition, 1 February – 4 March 2013

My new botanical series – “Petalum” – is currently on show until 4th March 2013 at the new “Fine & Contemporary” Gallery in Clare, Suffolk, UK.

The thirty monochrome prints feature a wide range of flowers and plants: from the beautifully sculpted Aqua Rose, to the crêpe paper petals of a field poppy, to the more exotic-looking Black Parrot tulip.

The series’ style hints at a more classical period in photography, but with a contemporary feel: capturing the fine detail inherent in each flower, but also the subtleties of light, shade, texture and tone.

The exhibition details:

1 February – 4 March 2013

Fine & Contemporary Gallery, Well Lane, Clare, Suffolk, UK  CO10 8NH

Mon, Thurs, Fri, Sat 10.00am-5.00pm;  Sunday 1.00pm – 5.00pm  (Closed on Tuesday and Wednesday)

New work – coming soon…

March 15, 2012

It’s been a busy few months!  I’ve been working on many new images, including a new botanical series, plus have been going back to one of the oldest printing processes in photography – the platinum print – in a collaboration with one of the UK’s foremost practitioners of this technique.  More on this next time.

For the moment, here’s an example of the new work, with many more to follow soon…
