Significant Stillness by Nicky Kenny
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 @ 10:30 am - Friday, May 27, 2016 @ 4:30 pm
Once again we’re pleased to be able to show an exhibition of photographs as part of our diverse programme of art exhibitions during 2016.
For May we are hosting an exhibition by Nicky Kenny, who tells us here about her work and inspiration:
“I have always loved photography. I remember as a child looking through old family albums, pictures of what may have been insignificant moments that had been locked in time, into tiny faded images, seeming now more significant in their stillness. In my twenties I was given an old Nikon camera from my father which I loved, but it wasn’t until my late thirties that I began to take my photography more seriously, because it became a compulsion. Something that I not only wanted to do, but had to do.
I photograph, perhaps to document the everyday. Life is so fast it seems and looking at photographs gives me a time to reflect and make sense of what has gone before. I want to steal the insignificant moments of the day to day and make them seem more than they are. I often go back repeatedly to favourite places and photograph the same image again and again. I also repeatedly tend to photograph the back of people, rarely their faces, as if they themselves are looking at the photograph too.
My photography is a personal journey for myself and often features my daughters. I take many images of Wolverton where I live and Milton Keynes’.
Here is an example of Nicky’s work:
We hope you’ll come along to view and enjoy Nicky’s beautiful photographs. The exhibition runs until 27 May.
