The Complete Picture

Opening Night

with one comment

Hi Everyone

Last night was the opening night of the Equinox Exhibition at Gallery ArtPlus, Belleville where I am the Feature Photographer. I have to say it was very special to see a whole collection of my work hanging together, all framed and matted in the same style. Although after all the work, late nights – complete nights and endless printing, I have to say that a sense of relief was the biggest emotion!


Myself in front of some of my pieces!


The pieces are very diverse from a photograph of the UK aerobatic team the Red Arrows performing during a very misty day in 2007 to sunlight bursting through the trees just along the street from where I live. Ultimately the majority of the images are about how the light plays with the subject, illuminating, shaping, revealing or concealing and I was pleased several attendees at the reception picked up this point.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting all the images and providing some commentary on the pieces. I’ve also worked out how to provide upto date providence information about each piece of work online and there are links to these too.   

Several friends and neighbours had no idea that I took such photographs and it was good to see them excited. The show also features a number of other very well established and talented local artists and further details can be found on the galleries website.

all the best, Steven
