'A coffee break' - photos by James Gilberd
I don't show my own photos in Photospace Gallery very often, but a gap in the exhibition schedule suddenly opened and it was a bit short notice to ask anyone else to fill it. So I have wanged together a selection of photos taken during apparently random encounters with material things and occasional people. They were all taken locally with either a DSLR or my cheap cellphone over the last couple of years or so. You may have seen some of them on my Facebook feed, or in blogs about the photo walks we've done with the Wellington Photography Meetup group.
On Saturday 15th July, you're most welcome to come along sometime between about noon and 3pm, have a cup of tea or coffee and a piece of cake and have a look at the pictures. There are also a few of my older works - the first Trophies series, shot on 5"x4" black & white Polaroid, to be seen in room 2.
Sue Guest's exhibition 'Into the Everyday' is still running in Room 3, too. This would be a good time to thank Sue for printing the photos that I was not skilfull enough at colour pigment printing to manage well. And a big thank you to Alan Wylde, for donating the Epson Photo R2400 printer that I made most of the prints with. It is a fine machine and I have yet to do justice to its capabilities.
