John Blakemore - Seduced by Light
Wed-Fri: 11-6pm; Sat-Sun: 11-4pm
John Blakemore: Seduced by Light brings together black and white landscapes and unique artist’s books to explore movement and light.
The exhibition includes black and white landscapes made in Wales and England. These range from early works that respond to the movement of water to later works taken in a forest that combine up to 48 exposures on a single negative capturing, in a single image, the ever-changing light and wind.
John Blakemore is one of the greatest British photographers and darkroom printers of the last half century. One of the leading photographers of landscape and the natural world, his equisite black and white prints, each subtly different as a result of toning or variations in exposure - represent interpretative responses to the subject before him.
