I am proud to be displaying some of my travel photos, with the broad theme of ‘Children’, in the lovely new Jellyfish Productions Gallery in Buckfastleigh. We had the opening night on the 1st of Feb, which was a lovely evening, with DJ Griff on the twin gramophone decks, playing very old school shellac and some funky tunes from his collection of records too. Lots of lovely people came, with lots of kids, cheese, cake and a licenced bar. The exhibition is on display for the whole month of February and the gallery is open Monday to Saturday, 12pm to 6pm. You can buy coffees and cakes etc. and peruse the interesting work from the other four photographers too.
It was a fantastic experience for me as a photographer, and made me look through photos I took over 10 years ago, with my first DSLR, with new eyes. Many of the images that I chose were taken before I knew much about photography and before I developed my style into what it is now. It made me realise that we are always changing and learning as photographers. In some ways, what I saw to make me press the shutter back then, still intrigues me now, but many of the images that I had discarded back then, I now see as some of my favourites.
Nathilde who owns the gallery is an experienced film director and is now running courses for adults and kids where they can make their own beautiful films. Check out the amazing little film that 4 seven year olds made here.
Here are a few pics of my work on display. I will put up higher close-up images of each photo that I displayed, once the exhibition is over. In the meantime, get yourselves down there and have a look.
