Making waves exhibition

Making waves exhibition is now showing at Hotel du Vin

60's Rock n roll exhibition

Gallery 2c has the 60's rock and roll exhibition up in the clifton gallery now. Works by Gered Mankowitz, Terry O'Neill, Bill Zygmant, - all take you back to the 60's. Pictures of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, apple studio, John Lenon and Yoko and George Harrison.

Making waves exhibition

Our current exhibition at Hotel Du Vin is Making waves by Adrian Peacock. A series of fantastic seascape pictures.
Adrian Peacock says Time is a crucial element to this series of works, and there is a sense of waiting for the moment when what could be a pretty snap turns into something more considered. Although the scene is captured within seconds, Peacock spends a long time waiting for the right conditions - the weather, the position of the sun, the tides- before he finally arrives at the decisive moment where all come together to make the definitive scene.

‘Only a few days a year is the sea is rough enough, and the light dramatic enough, to give me the right conditions to make these images’.

Tim Flach

Professional photographer Tim Flach takes photos mostly of animals that include horses, bats, pigs, monkeys and others. Renowned for his highly stylized animal portraits, design and detail dominate his visual style. Tim Flach's work has been featured in publications such as Creative Review and Stern Magazine and has won many international photography awards which include the Association of Photography and British Design & Art Direction Awards.
Tim Flach and his photography project Equus has established him as a top horse photographer.
Tim Flach's bestiary evokes pathos, humour and an unmistakably intimate human empathy. Not only do we begin to find supposedly repellent creatures charming, but discover a sympathetic vulnerability, an unexpected lightness and humour in their gestures and attitudes, as if putting on a performance for our benefit in a readily accessible comedy of manners all their own.
"You can never predict an animal's mood" - says Flach - "so you have to plan beforehand to get what you want." For example, the temperature in the studio often has to be carefully adjusted before animals feel comfortable. Some may need their handler's presence nearby. Most small creatures are easily intimidated by the mere height of a man and must be raised to an equal leve. Some like music, while others are distressed by noise. Sometimes Flach and his studio team must work together, like a circus animal trainer and his assistant, to achieve the required response.

Top Tip Numero Uno

Keep your camera on you all the time.
Photo opportunities often come when you least expect it. If you can keep your equipment relatively simple – just a small camera bag and a tripod – you might be able to take advantage of some of these.
