Following on from the recent yearly exhibitions from Second
Look, the Bristol based artist-led creative photographic group, this exhibition
promises to be one of the best of its' kind. The theme of the exhibition
permits a wide-ranging portrayal of the City with members of Second Look
presenting their personal interpretation of the theme. Consequently, visitors
to the exhibition will find high quality work to suit a variety of tastes to
art collectors and families alike.
From ghostly monochrome studies of misty and cloudy scenes to vivid colour
renditions of architecture and people, there will be something to tempt
everybody as an acquisition or decorative feature. Work is included from both
international award winning artists and lecturers in photography,
semi-professionals and talented amateurs. All work is for sale and has been
selected based on quality and composition.

Only one picture may be taken to represent each topic.
Participants will collect their cameras between 10 a.m.
