By The Water's Edge


Uwe Ackermann uses photography in his own words 'as a filter for the visual world and a tool for focusing on what is there for all to see'. Following a journey to New Orleans in the 1980s, Uwe was inspired to record the city's use of and connection with iron, and so began taking photographs. This exhibition will be an exploration of 'the water's edge' as a transitional place of life and a place of death, where many congregate to re-invigorate body and soul, an edge that 'takes, gives, reflects and tantalises'. Trained as a physiologist, Uwe spent his professional life teaching and researching at the Universities of Oxford and Toronto, before taking up photography full time.
