A Tribute to Ansel Adams: 100 years of photographing Yosemite

Photographs by Charles Cramer Joe Cornish & Dave Chalmers

17 November - 23 December

2016 marks the centenary of Ansel Adam’s first ever photographic trip to Yosemite National Park in California, as a young boy with his Brownie box camera.

It is fitting therefore, that our last exhibition of 2016 is a tribute to his photography and the iconic images of Yosemite. Featuring work by Joe Cornish and Scraborough based photographer and printer David Chalmers, we are also delighted to be exhibiting work by American landscape photographer Charles Cramer.

Charles was a friend of Ansel Adams and not only learned from and worked with Adams, but also still exhibits and leads workshops at the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite.

Speaking about Charles ahead of the exhibition, Joe Cornish said:

"Charles Cramer is one of America’s greatest living landscape photographers, an artist whose poetic vision of colour in the western landscape has inspired thousands of fans, collectors, students and photographers. He also has a unique experience of printing colour having mastered dye transfer, the ultimate form of analogue photographic print-making. He has brought all that experience to digital technology, and the subtlety and beauty of his digital prints is unsurpassed.

As a young man Charles Cramer attended a number of Ansel Adams workshops, and found common cause with Adams… a fellow pianist. They remained friends until Ansel’s death in 1984. Charlie has collaborated with Ansel’s one-time assistant and technical adviser, John Sexton, on workshops for many years. His prints may be found in the Ansel Adams gallery in Yosemite (as well as many others), and Yosemite has been the primary inspiration for his photography, and is the base for many of his workshops.

We are hugely privileged to have him as a visiting master of photography.”

Life on the brink: wildlife of India and Amazonia

A photographic exhibition by Will Nicholls and Param Sandhu

27 August - 24 September


Will Nicholls is a wildlife photographer from Northumberland.  Will has established himself as one of the most promising up and coming young photographers in the country having won a string of awards including Young British Wildlife Photographer of the Year (2009) and the RSPCA Young Photographer Awards Overall Winner in 2011. Will’s pictures have been published locally, nationally and internationally.  
In the summer of 2015 Will travelled to Manú, Peru - the most biodiverse place on Earth - to photographically document the wildlife in a regenerating area of rainforest, which had been entirely cleared 40 years ago. The Amazon Rainforest is nicknamed the ‘lungs of the Earth’ and is home to many different species. It is a biodiversity hotspot, but famously under threat from deforestation, gold mining, soy plantations and more. The exhibition will showcase a number of different species not only living, but thriving, in a rainforest that is re-establishing itself and giving hope to conservation efforts worldwide.
Will’s talk will be orientated around both video and still imagery, and will give a rare and unique insight into South American wildlife in Amazonia.

Dr Param Sandhu is a nature photographer with a special interest in photographing tigers in the wild.
Param is concerned about the plight of the wild tiger and communicates this to the world by showcasing his tiger photographs to international audiences. Through dedication and much time spent in the jungles in India, Param has developed  a formidable understanding of the behaviour of wild tigers. He is specially observant of the young; tigresses, their cubs and their interactions form an important part of Param’s photographic portfolio.
A hundred years ago there were over a 100,00 tigers in the wild in India. It is now estimated that there are only just over 3 000 wild tigers in the world; 70% of these, around 2 000, live in the jungles of India. The dwindling numbers are entirely due to man and his actions; either related to his (man’s) own development and habitat destruction or criminality and the lucrative trade in tiger parts.
Param is a committed wildlife photographer and a speaker with a deep passion about the threat to this species.

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.

Archive: Songlines by Linda Lashford

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
