Exhibition at the Brick Oven, Bantry

An exhibition of 14 limited edition photographs, mounted on aluminium opened at the Brick Oven from this weekend. The photographs explore movement, and its counterpoint, stillness. The isolation, self control and purposefulness of a bird in flight through apparently empty space is framed and confined by the camera's lens. This conscious use of the body to negotiate a space is echoed by athletes and dancers alike. Using longer exposures, and layering techniques as well as straight forward photography, a moment in time is captured and the empty spaces made more potent by the figure moving through them.
