An exhibition of photographs by Javier Molina

Gallery open Wed – Sun 11 – 4
“Digital imaging provides a myriad of possibilities.
There is very little on this world that has not been photographed and one might venture into stating that everyone is now a photographer. What makes a photograph exceptional, unique? Simply the intention and the vision of the photographer.
I have no qualms in stating clearly that all my photographs make extensive use of post processing because ‘it is not what I see but how I see it’ as Alfred Stieglitz once said.”
Linden Hall Studio’s August exhibition showcases Javier Molina’s diverse photographs around two themes: ‘Landscapes’ and ‘Imaginations’.
‘Landscapes’ includes Kentish landscapes, Andean images and a selection of black-and-whites grouped under the title ‘A Murder of Silhouettes’.
‘Imaginations’ are a composite of several photographs that make up a scene with a surreal air. Once a photograph has been processed it becomes unique.
