LOCAL photography is on display as Woodend Art Gallery launches its first exhibition of the year.

Entitled Through the Glass: Brightly, the exhibition features the work of a group of local photographers, including Woodend Creative Workspace resident snappers Jehan, Tony Bartholomew and Richard Wood.

In addition the exhibition will feature the work of invited artists Sue Webster, Peter Leeming, Ged Hickey and Louise Hughes

Jehan’s images are made up of several photographs taken at different moments and from different positions and his most recent work concentrates on Yorkshire’s seaside towns and resorts.

With over 25 years experience working as a photographer, Tony Bartholomew not only produces eye-catching images for media and corporate clients but he has an eye for the unusual. Richard Wood is a perfectionist who uses the finest tools and a constant drive for excellence to take and make great pictures.

Sue Webster’s photographs explore the relationship between space and time, using the North Sea as a reference point. The panoramic landscape images of Teeside artist Ged Hickey explore local views and other sites of natural beauty.

Peter Leeming works with film cameras and his photographic art of the wilder parts of Yorkshire’s Dinosaur coast has largely been recorded at dawn or dusk, and has involved some struggles with tides, darkness, and weather. The photography of Louise Hughes is based on her home village of Robin Hoods Bay.

Through the Glass: Brightly is on display at Woodend Art Gallery until February 11.
