Just one colour

Geoff's pic

This exhibition was inspired by the image above when I realised it only has one colour – that assumes that you agree with me that that black, white and shades of grey are not colours from the spectrum.

I like to set myself a project and 2 years ago this became the latest and most difficult yet!!

None of the images have been photoshopped as I do not use it; mainly because it is too costly and I do not understand its terminology.

I hope you find this interesting – and please, put your thoughts in the book.

Exhibition runs from 3rd until 28th July

Diversity in the Frame!

MIP poster 2018-3


As soon as you put one photograph beside another, you change the effect – and even the story – of both of them. In this show each frame contains an exhibition in miniature: three or more photographs have been put together in a sequence or arrangement in order to create a different effect than they would separately.

We hope you enjoy our experiments.
