international found in and around a traditional seaside resort.
Black and White Exhibition Preview
Hastings creative framers Imagen have invited four local photographers to showcase
their work in a forthcoming exhibition to be held at The Imagen Gallery. Entitled
simply quot;Black and Whitequot;
There will be work on show from Lin Gregory LRPS, Ian Land, Richard Fisher and
Patrick O‘Farrell ARPS. The exhibition runs from Saturday 7th until Saturday 21st
June inclusive with a private view on Friday 6th at 6.30pm.
The black and white work being shown will include a range of genres, from the
abstract to the more traditional landscapes of the 1066 area and beyond. The variety
of subject material produced by the photographers reflects the diversity of the area
that we live in, capturing an alternative viewpoint of many local landmarks as well as
those further afield.
Prints at the exhibition will be offered for sale with further copies available on

almost entirely in monochrome, mostly using medium format and 35mm film cameras, and developing
and processing his own film. Living in Hastings since January 2006, the town and surrounding area
have become his main subject. Currently planning a self-published book of his photographs of Hastings
and around, which should see the light of day late in 2008.

My interest in documentary photography led me in the early 1980’s to the purchase of my first film
SLR camera and from there my passion for photography grew. I studied City and Guilds photography
in the early ‘90s and gained the Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society. I continued to work with
film, printing my own black and white images, then, in 2005, the improvements in digital cameras
finally persuaded me to switch. Since then I haven’t looked back and found that the potential within
the new technology has introduced me to a whole new digital darkroom experience.

A local born amateur. Photography is a recreation for me, and if my work reflects my
fondness for my home town and it's suroundings, I'm glad.
