I'm absolutely thrilled to be a part of this exciting landscape photography exhibition, which will showcase work from all around the world - celebrating the art of landscape photography. The initiative started in 2014 as ’The Year of the Print’, when Charlie Waite and Light & Land invited past participants of their workshops and tours to take part in an exhibition to celebrate the concept of printing their images, not just viewing them on a screen. The event was so successful that they opened it to a wider audience - and this year there will be up to 100 exhibitors, of which I will be one!
I visited The Mall Galleries yesterday to have a look at my space, and I'm now about to embark on the hideous challenge of trying to select around six of my favourite images to display. I've seen the quality of last year's entries and am already daunted at the prospect! I'll post them here when I've made the decision - and then starts the equally challenging task of transforming them into paper and ink. In the meantime, here's one of my shortlisted images - I call it 'Foggy School Walk'. Waiting for the boys to get into the perfect position, and hoping they would both be clear of the trees at the same time, was a tense moment, but they did a perfect job for me and I was delighted with the outcome. Just goes to show you really don't need sun to take a great landscape image.
