I have been kindly invited to participate in the following Photography Exhibition, come take a look!
This August the Grant Bradley Gallery presents a curated exhibition of photography selected from a diverse group of artists living and working in the Bristol region. The exhibition encompasses works of contemporary portraiture, landscape and social documentary. With no given theme, each artist displays the work that best represents themselves.
Perhaps one of the most debated creative disciplines, photography’s position as a serious artistic medium still remains a widely discussed subject. Following the digital camera revolution and proliferation of the internet, it is no longer necessary for photographers to be bound by a complex understanding of the camera’s mechanics. From a positive point of view this leaves photographers free to use the camera purely as a tool to express their ideas and creativity.
The contemporary photographer is challenged to both gain recognition within their chosen medium and the art fraternity as well as creating pieces that engage a discerning audience already experienced with photographic imagery.
