Photographic Exhibition by Trevor Ashby in Oxford


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.
