“Look at lots of exhibitions and books, and don't get hung up on cameras and technical things. Photography is about images.”
– Fay Godwin
Will be at Light and Shadow Gallery today. Please drop in and say hello. Here’s the blurb from the gallery newsletter.
“Len's exhibition commenced several weeks ago and visitors have been appreciative of his images. They are sensitive, intimate and sensual images of landscapes, still life and nudes taken by an experienced and sensitive photographer witth a nuanced eye for light and composition. Len is primarily a teacher of digital photography and I can imagine just how good a teacher and mentor he would be. As usual I curated the exhibition and I believe this is one of the best exhibitions so far in the Gallery. His exhibition is up until mid January so please come along to the LS Gallery in the next month.
