iOpening next weekend 24th June is the new Canalside Heritage Centre in Beeston Rylands, next to the canal at the lock, formerly weir /lock keeper's cottages. I, alongside my teaching group and our collective, Beeston Snappers, are proud to be the first to exhibit photographs taken before the space was renovated and in a state of dereliction.
Our exhibition runs through til August so there will be plenty of time to see the work hung - my photographs are based around the hints and traces of human presence still in existence when I photographed the space.
Other work includes, textures, exteriors and transformation. I am very excited to see the work in this brand new beautiful space - light and airy, with an outdoor balcony next to the weir gallery - and yet with a real feel of age and atmosphere in the ground space. Please do take the time to come along to this space as it's just beautiful!
We hope to have a viewing night also where friends, families and supporters of our work are welcome to attend - more info to follow but for now - a sneak preview of one of my larger images included in the exhibition.
