Rye Around and About: A Particular View, Rye Arts Club, Swann Gallery, Mermaid Street, August 13
PHOTO prints and an artist’s book by designer and photographer John Fewster go on show in Rye tomorrow (Saturday).
The limited edition prints show Rye’s rural surroundings, and are accompanied by a beautifully produced small book.
John’s photography majors on landscapes and includes published collections from the Scottish West Highlands and the Austrian Alps, in addition to local Rye area material.
He offers a very particular view of landscape, getting close to the rural environs, especially walking or running through secluded parts of the countryside surrounding Rye.
Many of the photographs capture a composition at a special moment where weather and light effects, even night light, combine to articulate the image.
The pictures give a romantic outlook, a personal view of the landscape, in order to create a visual narrative that will communicate the unique and special qualities of the subject.
The book will be available in Swann Gallery, Rye Tourism Information, the George Hotel and the Mermaid Inn.
