Photographic Exhibition by Trevor Ashby in Oxford

TREASURE HOUSES:

Ashby spent fourteen months at the Eden Project,working in natural light, so the rhythm of his work was controlled by the light under various weather conditions. He found pattern & structure in the forms of the natural world – not only looking to the specimen plants, but also making images from fallen leaves & flowers, that often lie unnoticed. From the fractures of decay and dissolution, he creates close-toned images that have their own opulence.

He also worked for a year at the Royal Cornwall Museum, unearthing fragile, often over-looked objects from the archives. The combination of curiosity and exquisite form, makes intriguing images.
