TWO short exhibitions on in Coventry and Warwickshire are showcasing photographic talents from the area.
Both look like they’re worth a visit but aren’t on for long enough for me to be able to write about them more fully in the Friday Coventry Telegraph art column.
At Rugby’s Floor One gallery in Rugby Art Gallery & Museum until May 5, Lee Prescott is showing his photographs in an exhibition called Infinite Ephemera. He lives in Hillmorton, Rugby, and this is his first solo exhibition of travel photography, and he says the works are “documenting those ordinary moments that once captured on film become extraordinary”.
The photos on show were mainly taken in Iceland and China using vintage film cameras, and look very atmospheric.
At the Lock Gallery in the Canal Warehouse at Coventry’s Canal Basin from Monday until May 7 is an exhibition of work by three student photographers, called Photographic Narratives. The photographers are Bijash Chauhan, Chloe Short and Kayleigh Dolphin.
The image used on the exhibition poster by Bijash looks classy and is a promising introduction to the exhibition.
