The Mind's Eye: Our human ability to visualise, imagine and to "see" with the mind; then to create pictures that affect us profoundly.
I am pleased to showing eight works in the second large scale exhibition by the nine photographic image makers from the Luminis collective, who are bringing their own diverse styles and approaches to the Queen's Hall in Hexham.
In this digital age where the emphasis is on the quick and easy creation of images, the refreshing emphasis of the Luminis group is on the creation of finely crafted photographic prints. These prints are presented as the natural outlet and the ultimate expression of each photographer's creative vision.
Luminis - "The Mind's Eye ". Saturday 12 September - Saturday 17 October. Free Admission

I am pleased to have been invited to speak at Stokesley Photographic Society in North Yorkshire on 10 September 2015, and to Morton Photographic Society in Carlisle on 23 September 2015.

Recently I was interviewed by Shutter Hub, and talked about my latest work, and how I reached this point.
I am delighted that my portfolio of prints from a "A Grain of Sand " won the "Shutter Hub" award at the 2014 Format Photography Festival in Derby. The judge for this was Brian Griffin so I am very flattered.
