Winchester City mill to showcase autumn photographic exhibition
WINCHESTER City Mill is hosting an autumn photographic exhibition showcasing landscape photography.
The show runs at the National Trust-owned mill on Bridge Street until October 26.
Highlights include the work of local photographer Terry Tucker. Predominately a landscape, nature and fine art photographer, he uses his understanding of film and digital technology to control tone, texture and colour.
Louise Lobban, a local artist with a background in fine art and photography, has taken Winchester City Mill itself as her subject. Using pinhole photography and camera-less image-making, she has created incredible ‘miniature’ landscapes that focus on elements of the Mill’s interior, resulting in images with an ethereal quality.
Ric Weeks, assistant manager at the mill, said: “This is our third year of running a photographic landscapes exhibition and it’s going from strength to strength. Visitors really connect with the artworks, which range from the dramatic to the sublime.
“Local scenes are particularly popular, and illustrate the beauty of areas such as the New Forest, and the countryside of Hampshire and Dorset; it really makes you want to get out there and see these sites for yourself.”
Over 50 images are on display at the Mill – a site that was chosen by the photographers because of its lighting, space and dynamics as an exhibition space.
