Finding That Special Place
'Flight' by Jonathan Glynn-Smith, 2013
Are there certain places that are important you? What is it that makes them so special? Perhaps it brings back a memory, makes you feel safe, or fills you full of awe.
Nine photographers have come to the Eleven Fine Art Gallery in Belgravia to share the sports that are important to them. These include natural environments and urban structures, which they find inspiring.
From The Road Again is an exhibition that promotes the significance of place, and how we all attach ourselves to particular locations.
Each artist uses different photographic techniques to present their landscape in the most evocative way possible. My favourite is Peter Newman's London St. Mary's Axe which juxtaposes London's tall modern and historic building in a distorted circular formation from a vertical angle. It makes you feel like you are lying on your back in the centre of the city, surrounded by these tower structures. While it sounds menacing, the bright blue sky and clouds above, make it a very welcoming environment, that makes you feel safe and cuddled.
The exhibition is open until the 7th June, and includes the work of Rob Carter, Harry Cory Wright, Gerry Fox, Rick Giles, Jonathan Glynn-Smith, Jane Hilton, Dede Johnston, Peter Newman, and David Yarrow.
