New homepage address

July 4, 2013

I’ve been updating my website a little over the last few weeks and a significant change that has been made is to the homepage address.  The new homepage is “www.paulcoghlin.com“, which is shorter and snappier!

Meanwhile, I’m currently working on a couple of new projects, and I’m hoping to be able to release new images from these soon.  Watch this space…

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)

“PETALUM” – NEW BOTANICAL SERIES

October 20, 2012

After almost a year of work on the project, my new botanical series “Petalum” is now available and can be viewed online here.

It’s been a very gradual process of selecting and locating the flowers, photographing them in our studio using a variety of lighting techniques to bring out the wonderful detail in each bloom, and then finally creating the finished print.  It’s certainly been a labour of love!

I’m intending to add further flowers and plants to the series and am also looking at the possibility of producing colour images in addition to the monochrome photographs.

As with my other images, fine-art prints of the Petalum series are available in a variety of sizes in both limited and open editions, and also as hand-crafted limited edition platinum prints, created by one of the UK’s leading specialists in alternative printing techniques.

If you’d like further details on the prints and prices, please don’t hesitate to drop me an email.  Thanks!

In the meantime, enjoy the new series!
