Tuesday 15th January – Friday 1st February at The Theatre Chipping Norton
A fine art photographer who lives in the Vale of Evesham and exhibits in the Cotswolds is staging her first major solo show at The Theatre Chipping Norton.
Kate Barry initially studied fine art and black and white photographic printing at Wolverhampton University, working in a variety of photographic formats such as portrait and commercial. For several years she worked as a photojournalist, starting out on The Banbury Guardian and later moving to the Evesham Journal Series.
Kate currently lectures at Evesham and Malvern Hills College in digital photography and Photoshop skills.
She specialises in images of landscapes, seascapes and natural forms and is interested in how the changing light and weather conditions can transform the landscape into a spectacle of form, tone, light and colours.
“I hope to capture the essence of what I see and feel in order to create an emotional response of wonder, delight, and surprise that celebrates the beauty of nature.”
Kate’s exhibition – Land and Sea – at The Gallery at The Theatre Chipping Norton will include some of her early black and white images that were taken on black and white film and processed and printed in a traditional darkroom, and which have now been transferred onto digital format. There will also be a cross-section of her more recent work captured on digital format.
Kate’s work is exhibited and sold in the 6HQ Photographic Gallery in Chipping Campden and The Gallery @ the Guild in Chipping Campden and is available as limited edition giclee* prints on fine art papers, each signed and numbered.
*Giclee is an invented name for the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. In recent times Giclee as a fine art term has come to be associated with prints using fade resistant “archival” inks.
