 Light In The Lens
Saturday April 19th 2014 - Wednesday April 23rd 2014  10:00 am - 3:00 pm

As photographers we use light in our pictures to bring out the character in portraits, the grain and texture in surfaces, and to concentrate our gaze within the frame. We pick a particular moment in time to grasp the ever-changing light and capture a unique visual record.
This exhibition includes images from the widest range of subjects, which we hope will add to the exhibition’s appeal. What all these photographs have in common is the way in which the light has transformed each image so that it becomes dramatic and special.

Free Public Admission
Through our colour vision we understand our world. It warns us of danger, makes objects quickly recognisable, and helps us to store and retrieve precious memories.
From the earliest cave paintings we have learned to express our feelings and share our thoughts with each other through colour. Colour photography was first developed during the 1860s but it had to wait until the middle of the 20th century before the general public had easy access.
This exhibition brings together a full spectrum of colour images from all aspects of our lives.
‘A Splash Of Colour’ is a touring photographic exhibition created and supported by The Photographic Angle.
