Scene Photography 26th -29th March

Our last exhibition at View from the Top gallery came from a local partnership of two photographers, Chris Burks and Rob Smalley.

Nottingham-based company, Scene Photography held a creative exhibition showcasing their talents. The ‘Night’ exhibition displayed a range of still images and time-lapse movies taken around the city at night, exploring the unseen, atmospheric side of Nottingham.

Open to the public from 26-29 March, Scene Photography also invited local creative businesses to the opening event to network in an informal setting.

The exhibition, sponsored by Nottingham print and graphic specialists, Caliba was a huge success with many visitors. For further information

East Midlands Photo Group 4th - 9th March

Nine local photographers presented for the first time, an exhibition of 120 outstanding images, in both black and white and colour.

The Images on show were of subjects in the UK and worldwide, with an emphasis on each individual presenting his or her work in their own particular style.

Each photograph in this magnificent collection stood proudly on its own, taken together as an exhibition they told a much more complex and subtle story of an ever evolving art form in constant creative response to new technologies, new eras, and new ideas, some of the photographs may have decades separating them, but equally as fascinating is the way each of them reflected its own moment in time and its personal kinship.

Samples of the work from the exhibition can be seen at;
