Opening to the public on Tuesday 19th May is ‘Reconnecting’ by Artist, Photographer and Author, John Lewell. This exhibition will showcase 50 new works, with the aim to renew the connection between art and photography, bringing back some of the latter’s unique characteristics, in particular spontaneity within a moment.
Lewell’s work in this exhibition is based on street photography, and features images that have been taken apart and reconstructed, changing the colour and position of elements. Each piece is composed of 21 portrait-shaped rectangles separated by narrow white lines, within a landscape frame.
A graduate from the University of Cambridge in Fine Art, Lewell is the author of several books including two on photographic software and two on computer graphics . Furthermore, he is the author of Modern Japanese Novelists
Reconnecting will be showing at The Strand Gallery from 19th – 23rd May 2015, 11am – 6pm everyday.
