Vision Gallery presents: In the Deep Midwinter, by U.K. Photographers, April 1st – June 3rd, 2011. If you are looking for a place to cool off as the Arizona weather begins to heat up, come to Vision Gallery and experience the images of U. K. photographers Pattie Boyd, Colin Barker, Lesley Aggar and Will Christie. On a night in December of 2009, photographer Pattie Boyd looked out her window and saw, “…hoar frost---white ice crystals that had suddenly formed. I was so excited to see this phenomenon that occurs very rarely in the U.K. Rushing outside with my camera, I found that everywhere I looked seemed as if a magical wand had touched the garden and neighborhood into a startling white beauty. I had an idea that if I could get other photographers who had shot during that winter to show their work with mine, I might find a gallery in a place that never sees snow.” And the plan for Vision Gallery’s exhibition was born.
Among the images are Colin Barker’s shots of a huntsman and his hounds. “Garlands Blizzard, “… captures the hounds following a scent during a very heavy blizzard. The Huntsman in the distance became so cold that day, he is shown walking rather than mounted, in order to try and keep warm. Having heard the hounds, I had just forded a river and pushed through the thick woods, so arriving just in time to capture this scene.”
Boyd will be signing copies of her memoir, Wonderful Tonight, and former Apple secretary, author of Miss O' Dell, will also be in attendance.
The exhibit runs from April 1st - June 3rd, 2011. Admission is free.
