Just as there are MORE THAN TWO SIDES to an argument
and MORE THAN TWO SIDES to a person.
This exhibition looks at my MORE THAN TWO SIDES as a photographer.
My photographic passions and inspiration lie in nature and live music and these two sides of me will be on view as will other sides.
To see what the others are, please come along to the Watlington Photographers Collective in the High Street where I will be exhibiting alongside:
- Andrew Kerr: primarily a social documentary photographer, presenting his take on England, Ireland and Scotland.
- Dee Robinson: showing the start of a project on the abandoned or not, boats along the our East coast.
- Mark Batchelor: interested in monochrome and alternative processes, presenting his cyanotype prints.
- Maria Mademyr: presenting details involving colours, shapes and patterns found in nature and objects.
Having spent over a decade in South Oxfordshire, John Hailstone is now based in West Somerset. He specialises in fine art and commissioned photography with a particular focus on nature and live music.
His creative approach comes from his origins in film photography and that of Ansel Adams in terms of observation, visualisation and realisation. In order to give him full control of the creative process he began digital giclée printing back in 1998.
A Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society, he has been featured in Amateur Photographer and has exhibited extensively in Berkshire and Oxfordshire, including ‘WOOD’, 'blue’, 'exo earth', 'WOOD LIGHT', 'The Web' , ‘Willows of Wallingford’, ‘SPECTRA’ and most recently ‘imperfect symmetry’.
