“The Party Is Over” – a random barrel on Catlow Lane, Manchester at the end of the night – printed and exhibited as one of the competition winners.

“Chania International Photo festival has been created by Blank Wall Gallery. Its aim is to gather 350 photographers from around the world each year, turning the town of Chania into an international centre of artistic expression focusing on photography. At the same time, we aspire to make this festival the biggest photographic event, since this will be the first time that so many international artists will be exhibiting their work in Greece.”

July – August, 2018 “A Day In The Life Of Manchester”, Corn Exchange, Manchester, England

Not strictly speaking an exhibition but nevertheless a public display of art that includes some of my images.

On April 1, 2017, I participated in the “A Day In The Life of Manchester” project, a social experiment aimed at documenting 24 hours in the life of the modern day city.

The captured photos – including several of mine – have been used by artist Nathan Wyburn to create a mosaic paying “tribute to Mancunian icon, Emmeline Pankhurst, who received the most votes in our poll.”  The artwork is on display in Manchester Corn Exchange during July and August 2018.

“Piastrellato” – detail of a tiled roof in Anghiari, Italy – printed and exhibited as one of the competition winners.

“Color in photography can play a very important role. It can convey a lot of different meanings and emotions. It can create a whole atmosphere and narrate a different story each time. They evoke feelings and reactions. Many people like or dislike a photograph because of its colors and this is natural. Also, the perception of objects can be different according to their color. One thing cannot be denied, vivid, saturated colors always attract viewers’ attention and provoke reactions either positive or negative according to everyone’s taste, psychology and aesthetics. Not everybody will react the same way to the same color, because colors influence us on levels, nevertheless, they do react.”

“The Journey” – printed and exhibited as one of the competition winners.

“Black & White photography is a beloved genre both for photographers and for viewers. It has many fans for a variety of reasons. Most people like Black & White photographs because they have a completely different atmosphere from the colored ones. The viewer can be taken to a new, completely different reality, see a different world and experience different emotions.”

“#Manchester” – printed and exhibited as one of the competition winners.

“Cityscape photography consists of urban and public places and scenes of everyday life. Everybody is on the run. The pace of life never slows down. There is a hectic rhythm full of noise and shouts. Images and situations pass in front of our eyes and disappear within seconds. Moments of happiness and unhappiness taking place in cities or towns, happen around tall, impressive buildings. Life and death, loss and achievement coexist in those buildings that contribute to the creation of the character and the atmosphere of each city.”

“Summer Is Coming”

“Congratulations to Brian Ashworth whose image Summer is Coming received an Honourable Mention in our recent ‘Month of May’ Photographic Competition.

‘This image was taken on May 22, 2017 in the deer park at Dunham Massey in Cheshire,’ says Brian, ‘on a glorious day of blue skies and scattered clouds, reflected along with the rushes in the lake.  Most of the lake surface was obscured by lily pads but fortunately there was a small area of clear water where I could take this shot.’

A framed and mounted print of Summer is Coming will be exhibited at the Alverton Gallery, Penzance, Cornwall UK during July 2017 along with the remaining top ten winning competition entries.”

“Dusty” and “Not For Highway Use” at the opening of the Swift Motorsport Gallery 2017

“Open Exhibition of Guest Photographers

25th May – 26th October 2017

At the end of last year we invited submissions from any of our guests who wished to exhibit some of their own work in the gallery this season. At the time we wondered if there would be enough interest to make an exhibition possible, but in the end we received far more submissions than expected and were forced to make some difficult choices over what to include and what to leave out.

We have ended up with a wide variety of work covering a wide range of racing subjects, from portraits and paddock scenes to contemporary and historic racing. The result is certainly quite unlike any of our previous exhibitions, with no particular central theme linking the pieces, except for the obvious enthusiasm for all forms of motor sport from so many of our gallery friends.

To all of you who have contributed to this event, a very big THANK YOU.”

“A Conflict Of Interest” – printed and exhibited as one of the competition winners.

“Colors can be found everywhere around us. They make our life more interesting and happier. We can always relate our mood with a color and a color can definitely change the way we feel. This is a truth that no one can deny or question. As a result, colors consist a source of inspiration for photographers. Sometimes it is the color itself that makes a scene worth shot, or a photograph worth seeing. It is the color that may make the difference after all.”

‘We were having lunch in the Queen’s Head pub last July on a glorious summer day,’ Brian explains, ‘when the dog wandered out of the Post Office and lay down to enjoy the sun – until then the view across the little square was pleasant enough, but the dog added that certain something that transformed it into a memorable scene just begging to be photographed.’

A framed and mounted print of Post Office Dog will be exhibited at the Alverton Gallery, Penzance, Cornwall UK during May 2017 along with the remaining top ten winning competition entries”
