Alex Isaacs Macro Adventure

These images are contemporary because they have been taken as a result of lockdown. Macro Photography is not something I have attempted seriously before. The subjects of the images were found either in my garden or in my fridge. Aphids, tomatoes and cucumbers all presented their own challenges which I very much enjoyed trying to overcome.

Angie Hill

Meetings with Shadows and Ancient Things

These images were taken locally in and around my village of Martley during my permitted daily walks. I am fascinated by shapes and patterns and things that aren't always what they seem to be, especially the way light can create something out of nothing. The ordinary is transformed into the extraordinary. A hidden and magical world where Triassic mermaids swim in a vertical quarry face, where shadows slide across green water like gauze veils and where ancient trees tell stories of harsh times and survival. In the woods the light creates abstract sculpture and calligraphic shapes.

Tineke Morgan Blurred, Colours and Shapes

These handmade blurred patterns are made using special techniques, styles and colours. Typically they consist of folding, twisting, pleating, styling and colouring and treatments on pieces of cotton, silks, fabrics or garments called 'Shibori Tie-Dye'. I see 'Shibori Tie-Dye' as an art form. I took the other two 'Blurred Images at Night' when I was in Bali. I was surprised to see the result of these images. For me, the combination of wood, brass, colours and details on my 'Wooden Brass Textures' image looks unique in panel style.

Ruth Bourne Alternate Realities

A quick dip into my back catalogue. These are presented primarily as individual images, the common link being the use of various camera techniques that capture a somewhat different view, including longer and double exposures and intentional camera movement.

Maddy Pennock Quiet in the Landscape

Everyone is talking about lockdown in towns and cities during this pandemic. Others are leaning out of the window to join in the clapping for NHS front line staff, but what about if you live in the rural countryside? It is silent, bar the sound of birdsong. I am fortunate to be able to walk along the River Severn to get my regular exercise in the quiet of the countryside with little to disturb me save the birds and my family group. Everything is hushed like a winter landscape. I have recreated that peaceful effect by photographing in infrared. There is a hushed beauty as nature continues on its way. I chose to process some of the images using false colour and with some there is a sense of anxiety and impending doom reflecting my response to this virus.

Judy Knights Auschwitz

75 years ago in 1945 saw the Liberation of the Concentration Camps in both Germany and Poland. In 2017 I visited Auschwitz – Birchenau which was the largest of all the camps. It remains to this day a very emotional place and a highly potent reminder of Mans’ inhumanity to Man. I suppose it is some comfort that these places, where such terrible things happened, are being visited by younger generations - I just hope they do actually realise what did happen there.

Locked-down, Locked-out, Locked-in and Looking-back

I haven’t taken a single image with my camera since Buenos Aires in late February, we’ve been in lockdown since after passing through Rome airport. While sorting out my back-catalogue images for Facebook friends I rediscovered an old plugin which I had used as an experiment to discuss with Martin and Clive earlier in the year. I conducted a simple exercise; I used one image and activated each of the thirty options provided in turn, I did not use any of the plethora of available adjusting sliders. I selected an old soft image; it is a photograph of Musk Mallow, a plant that grows in abundance in one small area locally. The first image is my starting point image; I include a selection here which are individually named by the plug-in.
