Mistresses of Light

Well, it’s been months and months in the planning. Endless toing and throwing about image selection. Thoughts and uncertainty as to whether my work ‘fits’ the theme…but now, finally, it’s here!

Over a year ago I was invited to join a very friendly and supportive group of both established and emerging female photographers who go by the collective name of ‘Landscapes by Women’.

The emphasis is to encourage and support female outdoor photographers and create a community, which gives visibility and inspiration to like-minded ladies in the pursuit of their art.

Directed by two fabulous women and very talented photographers, Vanda Ralevska and Beata Moore. Between them, they have tirelessly steered LBW to the forefront of British landscape photography by firmly placing the work of some very talented female photographers well and truly on the map!

Who’d of thought that in such a short span of time that I would be part of our first collective exhibition at the Gallery@OXO, ‘Mistresses of Light’.

I am extremely proud to be part of LBW and delighted to be part of this exciting event.

Pop in and say hello….it’d be good to see you!

Press Release: Set in the heart of London, "Mistresses of Light" brings together a selection of evocative images in an exhibition celebrating the art of landscape photography created by emerging and established women artists.   Drawing their inspiration from the land and the sea, the showcased images seek to capture the feel of the fleeting moments created by the special quality of light in nature. Having an affair with the unsurpassed light in the landscape, all the artists are not only mistresses of imagery, but also great supporters of creative and imaginative techniques. The exhibition unites a range of styles and artistic interpretations, from classic grand views, through intimate details abundant in nature's riches, to painterly and abstract images delicately conveying the beauty to be found within the landscape.   Exploring landscapes and pushing the boundaries of classic and progressive photography has resulted in an inspiring exhibition of traditional film work alongside digitally enhanced imagery. This ambitious exhibition not only presents personal takes on landscapes, it also emphasises the importance of photography in contemporary art.   Contributing Photographers   Sue Bishop              www.suebishop.co.uk Susan Brown           www.susanbrownphotography.co.uk Karen Frenkel          www.karenfrenkel.info Charlotte Gilliatt      www.charlottegilliatt.com Cheryl Hamer           www.cherylhamer.com Deborah Hughes      www.debhughesphoto.com Marianthi Lainas       www.openspaceimages.com Sarah Medway          www.sarahmedwayphotography.com Beata Moore             www.beatamoore.co.uk Vanda Ralevska        www.mylenscapes.co.uk Rachael Talibart        www.rachaeltalibart.com Linda Wevill              www.lindawevillphotography.com
