Eyes of the Heart – A Photographic Journey
Private View: Thursday 30th March, 5pm – 7pm
Exhibition runs until: Friday 21st April 2023
Celine’s journey began with flowers and nature, including macro photography and focus stacking, seeing the minuscule detail and miracle of each single flower. This in turn, because of the beauty of nature, drew her deeper and led her to the spiritual beauty of churches and cathedrals.
The next part of Celine’s journey led her to beauty of a different kind, hidden in the slums and streets of Kolkata, Celine took some fascinating photographs, capturing moments of time within the community of Kolkata, some of which form part of this exhibition.
And then Lockdown arrived… isolated and at home, Celine took part in a book project involving members of the RPS Contemporary North group about what 2020 meant to her.
Once lockdown had lifted, Celine started to venture out and went onto publishing two books – ‘Restless Waters’, which are poems/prayers and reflections of her journey over the past 20 years and also – ‘Eyes of the Heart’, a photobook of the images she took during her time in Kolkata.
Celine had now entered a new phase of her photographic journey interpreting things creatively using Photoshop and intentional camera movement, returning once again to nature, countryside and seaside.
We do hope you can make it to the opening, which offers a great opportunity to meet Celine over drinks & nibbles and ask any questions you may have about the work on display.
