Lombard Street Gallery is hosting an exhibition with a new artist to the venue- photographer Greg Bottle and his new body of work inspired by Anthony Gormley’s Another Time.
There will also be work from artists including Ruth McDonald, Anthony Giles, Nick Kelly, Hugh Ribbans and Ben Dickson.
The exhibition opens with a preview on Saturday, December 2 from 2pm-4pm with an opportunity to meet some of the artists involved.
Greg has been taking photos since he was a child after his grandfather gave him his rangefinder camera. He first got serious about photography in 1984 when he took up scuba diving as he wanted to show others what he’d seen whilst diving. Photography is a way of life for Greg and he says: “I can’t imagine life without it.”
When asked about his approach to and style of photography he said: “I work hard to avoid being pigeonholed into just one skill set or style of photography, my approach is multi-skilled.”
With his passion for the great outdoors and more adventurous side of life from climbing mountains to diving oceans, photography is a way of expressing his view of the planet’s beauty and the magnificent creatures that live on it.
Greg says he will find a way to shoot and capture the subject and create a beautiful image even if the weather light time of day isn’t perfect, adding: “Getting the shot is my biggest obsession – and not much stops me getting it.”
Greg was chosen to become an Olympus Camera Visionary with numerous photographs used by Olympus in marketing media, lens books and magazines and has received photographic commissions from clients including DOXA Watches, SERCO, Adeccon, System C, Gary Rhodes, Thanet College, Broad Oak BMW, Vines Group, Specialist Cars, TMC, Keel Toys, Vikings Canterbury and Elite Diving.
