Leonardo Gallery is pleased to present a new exhibition of photographic works as an official venue of the CONTACT Photography festival.
Photographers Bret Culp, Joshua Harrower and John Long explore landscapes outside the city limits. From Bret Culp’s stark images of nature, Joshua Harrower’s exotic scenes from India to John Long’s exploration of contrasting vast landscapes, this exhibition gives us a panoramic view of the world around us.
Bret Culp has recently won a Spider Award for his feature photograph Strength, whose symbolism ties in with his recent personal experiences in life and philosophies about the strength of the human will and fortitude of our fragile bodies.
John Long has a compelling series done in stereo photography, a rare and historic technique of viewing images in three-dimension. John Long is a man of infinite love of historic techniques, methods, equipment and aesthetic. He’s an informative and charismatic individual who enthrals his audience. John will also show a stunning series of large-scale panoramic landscapes that engulf the viewer into detailed scenes.
