Life seems to have become rather hectic since I last sat down to write one of these. It used to seem easier to write up about a recent trip with the associated photos, now it seems that my attention is demanded elsewhere and, whenever I do manage to head out with a camera and a plan time slips by after I’ve returned. I have had a productive few weeks and it’s been quite rewarding in many ways.
Just under two weeks ago I was busy helping to set up my first joint exhibition, at the tail end of last year I had been approached by Grampian Hospitals Art Trust about exhibiting some of my work in one of their galleries.
I was rather taken aback to be honest, it’s not something that I thought would happen without having been part of a few more open exhibitions (if ever!).
My immediate thoughts were that to do it solo would be a big ask so I asked my friend Jason, of Icarus Owen Photography, if he would be interested in putting forward a joint proposal and giving us both a chance to exhibit in one of Aberdeen’s busiest galleries.
So, after months of planning and a fair bit of hard work out taking photos we eventually arrived at the week of our opening. After delivering our framed images we worked alongside the staff at GHAT hanging our images in the Small Gallery at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Our opening was that same evening and as we watched everything come together the excitement, and realisation, of what we were doing increased.
For more of Jason's work please take a look at his website which can be found by clicking here.
The exhibition has a six week run, of which we are now at the end of week one. If anyone would like to go along to have a look it runs until the 2nd June and is located in the Small Gallery at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
Below I've included each of our images that is currently on display at our exhibition, each one can be clicked on which will open a larger version.
