'Exposures' at Theatre Royal, Winchester

DSC_1061 ed EMAIL
This week saw the opening of Joe Low’s latest exhibition, ‘Exposures’, at Winchester’s Theatre Royal.
Joe Low adds to his extensive portfolio of creative work with this new exhibition. Theatre Royal Winchester invited Joe to respond to the idea of photographing members of the public in the streets of Winchester displaying dramatic episodes in their lives. The images reflect on the relationship between performed drama and the theatre of real life. The exposures range from candid to intimate and deeply affecting to humorous. A very shallow depth of field, (very little in focus except the focus point) was used with these photographs, thereby suggesting how little we reveal ourselves, or how little we generally understand or appreciate each other. All the subjects exhibited have been very brave to allow us a little window into their lives and for their exposures to be publicly displayed. For this I thank them. I would also like to thank Kate Raines (Theatre Royal) for suggesting the the original idea for this exhibition and Emma Stafford (Theatre Royal) for her practical help with photographing the subjects.
The exhibition, on display in the Back Garden Cafe (previously the Atrium), is free to view during normal opening hours and runs until 11th May 2012.
