A Road Petrol Stations at Night – Aspex Guildhall, Portsmouth 2014

As a result of the degree show series at the University of Portsmouth in 2012, Andrew was the recipient of the Aspex Graduate Award 2012.  The award is given to students from the summer show at the University by Aspex, a local art organisation and gallery.  The prize for the award includes an exhibition sometime in the future and this was what led to this show.

Through this award Andrew was commissioned to expand his photographic series, ‘A Road Petrol Stations at Night’ from the initial 3 images to 10 images which were then exhibited in the Aspex Guildhall gallery in the centre of the city.  During the three months of exhibition between August and October 2014 the work was seen by thousands of people and gained international attention from many organisations including the Royal Institute of British Architects.  The article from RIBA can be found here

Inspiration from the sky

Took a trip to London at the weekend which is always fun and while our way to our intended show we came across an exhibition of aerial photography hosted at the Royal Geographical Society.  The collection consisted of many exciting photographs of parts of the United Kingdom taken from the air.

The thing that excited me most about this series of images is that it did not entirely consist of the beautiful ‘chocolate box’ views of this country that one would expect.  It instead had a wide range of subjects from the stunning examples of coastlines to the overwhelming views of power stations doing what they do.

The body of work really goes to show how diverse and historical this country is and that one doesn’t need to spend a fortune just to see some amazing and truly outstanding sights!

The show is free to visit and is hosted in the Royal Geographical Societies gardens until the 12th of July.  As it is an outdoor show, maybe pick your day depending on the weather but certainly worth a visit.IMG_3107IMG_3106
