29 Sept 2014 - Somerset Event Photography - SAW: Lucy Lean's Poppy Installation at Bruton

Lucy Lean's installation, 'Suspended in Memory', was a stunning display to photograph at Bruton School for Girls as part of Somerset Art Works' Open Studio Weeks. It was a privilege to document the opening evening of the exhibition for SAW. Walking in to the room you are instantly moved by the swaying field of poppies. The deep green carpet and red blood poppies certainly captivates the viewer and keeps them pondering. Working under tuition of SAW artist-in-residence Lucy Lean and her assistant Cath Ingram, students at the girl's school create delicately hand crafted feathery poppies with handwritten inscriptions on each poppy.

This was a beautiful exhibition and it's wonderful to see such poignant pieces of art in Somerset. And working with Somerset Art Works was, as always, a pleasure! See more work I've done for SAW here.

Also I'm pleased to see my images published in various online publications:
