There will be an exhibition of my Godrevy photographs at gallery@oxo, South Bank, London, on 20-25 May 2015.
Built in 1859, Godrevy is one of Britain’s most iconic lighthouses. Its beam reaches out over St Ives Bay, Cornwall, warning ships and boats of a treacherous half-submerged reef. It has figured in paintings and drawings by the generations of artists based in St Ives since the 1880s and was the inspiration for Virginia Woolf’s 'To The Lighthouse', based on her visits to the area during childhood holidays.
Taken in 2010-14, the photographs show the lighthouse in the context of its landscape, seascape, geology and weathers. The exhibition will include 17 large triptychs and 10 single images.
