Leigh is coming to talk to us about Negative Space. He has been taking pictures for over forty years. His work has been mainly thematic, making images as a series. He has a relatively specific approach to what he choose to make pictures of, and he relies heavily on atmospherics, dramatic lighting and strong storylines to convey an individual style.
A lot of his personal work is taken either in isolated places or of buildings and landscapes that are well past their ‘sell-by’ date. His work is often monochrome, using both digital and darkroom processes, depending on the ‘feel’ he wants from the finished print.
Leigh holds two RPS Fellowships, one for pictorial images taken of the mill towns in Lancashire and Yorkshire and the other for darkroom printing. He belongs to the ARENA group of photographers and is a member of The London Salon. There have been two books of his images published: “Shadows of Change” and “Five Essays”. His work has been exhibited in London, Dublin, Birmingham, Reading, Manchester, Gloucester and Belfast.
Each panel will be presented as a projected digital image made up of several images. More details will be published soon.
