Two Photographers - Capturing Light is a collaborative exhibition featuring two Wirral-based photographers who each draw their sources and inspiration primarily from the natural world and what they find within it.
Mark Reeves: A concerned environmentalist, Mark creates much of his low-impact work within walking distance of his home in West Kirby. In Capturing Light, he exhibits work made at the Marine Lake and in his bedroom. As well as enjoying taking photographs and exhibiting, Mark also teaches photography, runs workshops and presents talks for organisations such as the Royal Photographic Society, Imaging Partnership and Dot-Art in Liverpool.
Mark's work has appeared at various galleries and public spaces including: Waterloo Station, London, World Museum, Liverpool, Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead, Dot-Art Gallery, Liverpool and Staacks Gallery, West Kirby.
He is an active member and qualified Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS).
Gaynor Davies: Gaynor’s work is all about colour, movement, light and shade. In this exhibition, Gaynor takes a different perspective on the local environment, showing how things we might look at every day can take on a whole new look and feel when they are interpreted from a more unusual viewpoint.
Much of her work is abstract, focusing on line and form, both in black and white and vivid colour. She has recently started to work with digital brushes to turn her photographs into artworks with a nod to surrealism, which she calls Dreamscapes.
Gaynor has exhibited at various venues throughout Wirral and the North West, including Liverpool’s World Museum. She has produced three books, including; Marine Lake - Theatre of Dreams which is a visual art interpretation of the activities that take place on the man-made lake at West Kirby. Her most recent book, Chroma Flora explores the world of flowers from unusual viewpoints. Both books will be available to buy at this exhibition.
Gaynor is also a qualified Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS).
