VIRTUAL TOUR & TALK: Alexander Lindsay Exhibition: South African Landscapes

Saturday 19 September, 11am SOLD OUT, 12pm  Bookings,  6pm  Bookings

On the morning Alexander’s exhibition opens to the public, join us for a virtual tour of the show and talk, via Zoom.

We are delighted to present a solo exhibition by photographer Alexander Lindsay whose incredibly detailed panoramic landscapes – described as ‘microcosms in scale’ – aim to allow the viewer to experience a place as he did at the time of being there.

To achieve this Alex uses up to 80 photographs of a scene which are digitally stitched together to create large-scale images with a scale and depth of field that is incredibly rich and sharp. The resolution and detail are completely immersive and almost super-real and extraordinarily beautiful.

For the past forty years, Alex has brought his cameras to the most extreme situations and environments on the planet. From his earliest experiences with the Maasai tribe, a five year spell in Afghanistan during Soviet occupation and his expeditions to photograph and film the wreck of the Titanic, 4km beneath the ocean waves, he has always sought to immerse himself in situations where, as he explains, ‘the imagination is rendered unnecessary’.

His recent projects include those in Namibia, Lesotho and South Africa, and his lifelong aim is to continually further our appreciation and comprehension of what is possible in photographic landscape art. His work has been exhibited internationally, including France, London, the USA and South Africa. His prints are included in major private and corporate collections worldwide.
