I'm A Photographer Get Me Out Of Here! exhibition info:
Two press photographers, Doug Peters and Richard Chambury shout “I’m A Photographer Get Me Out Of Here”, as they attempt to escape the madness of Planet Celebrity and reconnect with what made them want to pick up a camera in the first place. With 40 years of experience photographing miles and miles of red carpet, from A to Z lister, screaming fans, Royal weddings, funerals and babies. This joint exhibition captures just how far they have gone to exorcise their demons, through images far removed from what they are required to capture on a daily basis.
Doug Peters :
Doug takes us as far away from the life he knows, often ending up in a much quieter landscape, spending hours waiting for the weather to work it’s magic with the landscape he has chosen to photograph. These are not the picture postcard places you see in a brochure, but more interesting sparse land and seascapes, where a visit to the supermarket is done monthly, in a truck, because it's a 300 mile round trip.
Richard Chambury :
Richard's photographs take a sideways and often amusing look at the world around us…concentrating on the people who he comes across often on journeys up and down the country. With great changes to the photographic industry and the introduction of digital, he has embraced all the new technology, shooting reportage images with medium format film, plastic lomography cameras, dSLR and lately the Apple iPhone.
Issy Chambury :
Issy Chambury is curating the event, in between her studies at the University Of Kent in Canterbury. She will be on hand to answer any questions about printing, framing & shipping of any of the purchased prints.
