Masters of Vision : Pete Bridgwood
Amateur Photographer who plays with big cameras and film when in between digital photographs.
Tim: Can you tell us a little bit about the exhibition – it’s been running for a few years now hasn’t it?
Pete: Yes. This is the third one we’ve done. Four years ago we did the first one with Charlie Waite and then two years ago we did one with David Noton and this year we’ve got Joe Cornish as our Master Photographer. The idea was that we would create a showcase for the work of a lot of emerging photographers in the first instance with a master photographer invited. What’s happened since the first one is that the initial photographers who were involved, a lot of them are still involved now and there own work has come on and shone in it’s own right really.
T: We were chatting with Chris about how his work developed over the last four years quite dramatically.
P: Yes and what’s wonderful this year is to see how all of the styles have evolved. It’s fascinating. I’m so proud of the guys for the show that they’ve put on. I don’t know if you agree but the quality of the work is great this year.
