Fiumano Projects is delighted to announce a major solo exhibition by British artist Ian Treherne. Release is an exhibition dedicated to Treherne's photographic works, with special reference to his own personal journey as a partially sighted artist.

About

Treherne’s intimate and candid portraits are the core of this exhibition. Working closely with his subjects he seeks to expose and celebrate the individual rather than simply capture a visual likeness. Each line, blemish and shadow is laid bare for the viewer to gaze upon, and with this scrutiny we come to see the character of the sitter.

 

Since 2009 Treherne’s passion for photography has been the main forcus of his artistic practice. 
Mentored by photographer Richard Foster. Ian became aware of the mechanics of photography as a child, fascinated with the magical box that froze the emotions which had transfixed his eyes onto a roll of film. It was after Ian's school life, that his two greatest passions Photography and Art began to sculpt his life. Treherne is greatly influenced by cinema, especially by the films of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. The lighting and atmosphere in vintage films play a large part in the overall appearance of his portraiture.

 

Using photography as a tool, almost as a form of compensation for his lack of sight, Treherne is able to utilise the lens of the camera, rather than his own eye, to sensitively capture the beauty and distortion of the world around him, which due to degenerative blindness (retinitis pigmentosa), he is unable to see.
