THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S EYE IN NEWHAVEN
September 1 2014.
Large photographic images are being put up on billboards across Newhaven this week as part of an outdoor Artwave exhibition entitled ‘The Photographer’s Eye’ supported by Lewes District Council. The works show different aspects of the town taken by three photographers: Carlotta Luke, Alexis Maryon and Kai Crick.
As part of her Photo@Harbourside project, Carlotta Luke documents the Marine and Carpenters' Workshops on Railway Quay as they change into a new college opening in September 2015. Alexis Maryon uses black and white images to focus in on the people and places of this port town. Kai Crick’s work explores light and colour, and challenges people’s assumptions of ruin and neglect by showing the town’s industrial heritage in a new light.
Meet The Photographers - Friday, 5 September, 6.00pm-8.00pm RNLI Building on West Quay.
This event gives visitors and residents the opportunity to see the works and find out more about the photographers themselves and why they were inspired to photograph the port town of Newhaven. Entry is free with donations to the RNLI. Places are limited so pre-booking is essential on 01323 897426.
The Photographer’s Eye runs through to the 7th of September.
