12th May - 19th June

This exhibition presents photographs by Lynne Blount and Sylvie Gummery taken at Perry Green
over many months with the kind permission of the Henry Moore Foundation.
These mainly abstract images, created using multiple exposures, are an art form in their own right.
The photographs are limited prints, unique and impossible to reproduce. They are complemented
here by sculptures by James Copper who has worked with the Moore Foundation for most of his adult life.

The photographs in this collection of limited edition prints, are unique, and impossible to reproduce. They are created using multiple exposures. This involves laying one photograph on top of another in-camera whilst varying many settings in between each exposure. This variety of camera settings creates the intensity of colour and the depth to the textures. To ensure the brightness and colour were correctly rendered, as well as to provide synchronicity from metal to metal, aluminium was chosen as the medium to print on rather than the more usual fine art paper. Aluminium has the added bonus of being light and pictures can be hung outside in a covered area.

Lynne Blount CPAGB

Lynne grew up in Harlow New Town, moving here in 1958. She remembers vividly the first time she set eyes on Henry Moore's 'Family Group'. A surprise visit to Perry Green eight years ago re-ignited Lynne's passion for Moore's sculpture, and so began, what was to culminate, over the last two years, in this exhibition.

Lynne has achieved distinctions and won many awards for her photography. She has had photographs accepted in a number of International Salons as well as the prestigious London Salon.

Sylvie Gummery LRPS

Sylvie has always been drawn to the earth shapes found in Henry Moore's sculptures. Photographing the sculptures with a macro lens brings out so much detail making the etchings far more visible and fascinating. The eye catching curves and the rather serendipitous effects of multiple images provide many opportunities for creative photography.

Sylvie has won awards and obtained an Royal Photographic Society (RPS) distinction for her photography

James Copper

James creates his sculptures using traditional carving methods to work with various types of stone, as well as wood, plaster, bronze, and occasionally, found objects. His pieces are nearly always figurative, drawing influence from an interest and knowledge of the sculptural works of ancient world civilisations.

He currently works for the Henry Moore Foundation, where he runs a team that is responsible for the conservation, restoration, transportation, and installation of Moore's work all over the world. James has been around the Henry Moore Foundation, one way or another, for most of his life.
