Annual Photography Exhibition 2019

Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society at Landmark Arts Centre, Teddington until 22nd April

The Landmark, the erstwhile ‘Cathedral of the Thames Valley’, currently shows off the cream of local photography, some being images which recently gained Royal Photographic Society distinctions.

Balm to the senses there are early morning mists rising over dewy meadows, the brume lifting from seashore creeks and, gazing out to sea, towering craggy protuberances dotting the view to the distant horizon.

Digital photography has afforded many differing techniques, special papers produce varying results, the framing and presentation has an effect too.  Images of leaves taken with an infrared lens in the plant house in Kew are particularly beautiful.

The unnerving stare of owls catches the attention, the downward sweep of its wings rendering one owl into a feathery ball. Equally unnerving are hooded Spanish Paschal penitents seeking absolution.
