Photographs of a pre-digitised era, Analogue Thoughts explores and celebrates the photographic achievements of Walter Oliver through a selection of pieces from his body of work, created over a period of more than 30 years.

About

Renowned for his unique dark room techniques, which comprise of a variety of lighting and exposures, Walter creates remarkably distinctive visual effects without any digital enhancement.

Having previously taken pictures of subjects including Lennox Lewis and Nigel Benn for such institutions as Campaign, Black Britain and ITV News, this exhibition showcases Walter’s stunning photographic collection, shot through the lens of his Hasselblad 500C/M camera.

This one day spectacular exhibition depicts Walter’s work in three distinct themes:

Images in Colour:

Demonstrating his ability to manipulate light and colours, in this series Walter uses the female models as metaphors to represent the central elements of earth and the wider universe. Walter utilises the sensuality of the female form, subtly clothed by light and shadow, to invoke a sense of nature’s power.

The Globetrotter:

Walter embarked on an extended period of global travel to enhance the range of his work. He presents contrasting scenes of both sublime nature and chaotic daily life, as well as the distinctive appearances of subjects from diverse cultures. Walter shares his individual experiences in Africa, Asia and beyond through the lens of his camera.

The Essence:

Walter has documented his personal and family life through his photographs. This selection of pictures provides a touching insight into his relationships with those in his closest inner circle. Walter captures images of his loved ones across five generations with both the skill of a professional photographer and the affectionate eye of a blood relative.
