Roger Mayne was a world-renowned photographer; best known for his work photographing street children around London in the 1950s and 1960s. Early in his career, Mayne spent a lot of time in the artists' colony in St Ives, Cornwall. Here he drew inspiration from the artists, made portraits of them, and photographed their paintings. This Southampton City Art Gallery exhibition , which has been curated by Mayne's daughter Katkin Tremayne, delves into this period of Mayne's life and explores how his time in St Ives impacted and influenced his later photography.



Mayne was interested in the relationship between painting and photography and approached photography as an art form. This exhibition hangs Mayne's photography of St Ives alongside portraits he took of artists in the community, as well as alongside paintings by the artists. The exhibition aims to create a dialogue between the different art forms to illustrate the impact this time had on Mayne's work and his life.

Roger Mayne and St Ives: A Defining Moment opened on January 13th 2018 and will stay at the gallery until the 12th of May 2018. All of the exhibitions at the Southampton City Art Gallery are free. Other current exhibitions at the gallery include Open Exhibition 2018: Four Seasons, Sweet Cuts, and Common Ground.
