Limited access by Susan Rowe

02 - 30 July 2016

Susan Rowe is a landscape photographer from County Durham. Since her retirement she has had more time to devote to photography, and has concentrated on expanding her photographic skills and developing her own personal style.

Susan grew very interested in landscape photography when her mobility became restricted by severe osteoarthritis.  Faced with such adversity this may not seem an obvious choice, but as a geographer Susan has a longstanding affinity with hills, mountains, lakes and the sea, and photography has proved a great way to keep in touch with the landscape and the places she enjoys. Being disabled Susan faces big challenges to find suitably accessible locations to take photographs. She sometimes uses walking sticks, but more often than not a wheelchair, working in tandem with her husband as he carries her tripod and pushes her chair. And, as Susan’s inspiration is drawn from the colours and moods to be found around sunrise and sunset, and the water patterns and abstracts formed in lakes, streams and the sea, gaining access to these locations is well worth all the effort.

Susan is a member of the Royal Photographic Society as well as the Disabled Photographers Society and, has successfully been awarded a “Licentiateship” by both organisations – LRPS and LDPS.

Songlines by Linda Lashford

- Exhibition Preview & Talk

Our forthcoming exhibition, ‘Songlines’ by Linda Lashford portrays an intersection between a moment, words and a place. The images in ‘Songlines’ comprise lyrical and haunting portraits of abandoned buildings, woodland, rivers and shoreline and inspired by Linda’s travels and poetry. The exhibition has three distinct themes; ‘Intimations of landscape’, ‘The splintered coast’ and ‘Trappings of light’ with images that all transcend the literal and focus on abstraction and the power of imagination. 

Linda Lashford is a Welsh born photographic artist, who abandoned a career as a physician and medical scientist to take up a nomadic life travelling across Europe. For over a decade Linda has created walking holidays and marketing content for the UK travel company, Inntravel in her role as their chief photographer. In recent years, she has been heavily involved in supporting Inntravel’s ‘Slow Travel’ campaign, and has created and published many evocative images of places and people. 

The exhibition ‘Songlines’ is Linda’s personal response to the landscapes she has encountered along the way. You can see more of Linda’s work at www.lindalashford.photoshelter.com.

The traveling life is the wellspring of her creativity and provides the impetus for her broad range of imagery; Linda is equally at home with documentary imaging and is currently working on a long term project documenting the rural people of Spain and Portugal
