Portsmouth Cathedral

October 16 - 29  2017

An exhibition of contemplative images

taken at Portsmouth Cathedral

During 2017, I have been visiting the Cathedral regularly with my camera in an attempt to capture the feel of the building.    I quickly realised that my normal street style was not appropriate here and I have been developing other, more ethereal styles which better capture the wonderful space and light in the Cathedral. The Cathedral is both modern and historic.  It is a religious building but also a vibrant public space where a wide range of activities take place.    My work displayed at the Cathedral in October encompassed abstract and contemplative photography, plus “Liminal Man” my comment on how occupied we are on our phones we fail to live in the present and see the beauty around us. There was an opportunity to try “Being Present” an interactive electronic installation which showed the participant what it feels like to be still.

The workshops, supported by Portsmouth Cathedral and the Arts Council, were run on the two Saturdays during the exhibition. Attendees learnt about this contemplative style of photography and how it can be used to take photographs that resonate with the photographer.
