Landscape Photographic Exhibtion

To and from Greenwich, an exhibition of photographs by Mike Curry.

The Greenwich Gallery, Linear House, Peyton Place, Greenwich, London, SE10 8RS

Runs up to 31st March.

Mike commented "The initial appearance of the collection of photos in To and From Greenwich is that of a very varied collection of work which spans numerous photographic disciplines, yet all are tied together as having been taken while on the way to, or returning from, teaching landscape photography.

Some images were taken impulsively (Greenwich Infra-Red Panorama) and some were just visualised and then planned to be taken later in the year when conditions favoured creating a successful replica of what I imagined (QE2 Bridge).

Perhaps though, all were prompted by the intellectual process of teaching, which brings ideas into focus, so while travelling to and returning from such teaching days one’s mind is acutely yet subconsciously, aware of its surroundings and in those moments you create memorable images or distil ideas without even thinking much about what you are doing.

Some people would call that ‘being in the zone’ but I prefer the term that I learnt through my yoga practice, ‘being present’, and that is the bond that ties these images together."

    Visited this exhibition last Tuesday, although it was only a small selection of his images it was diverse, well selected and visualy stimulating. I enjoyed it very much.
    Thanks Jon.
