John Bradshaw FRPS - Dec/Jan 2013
Dr John Bradshaw FRPS
3rd December - 17th January 2013
Please note we are closed from 24th December - 2 January 2013
Born in Ireland in 1944, Dr John R Bradshaw FRPS qualified in Medicine at the University of Dublin. A serious amateur photographer all of his life, he specialised in monochrome and alternative printing techniques. His more recent work has been in major photographic projects encompassing such diverse topics as the Grand Tour of the German poet Goethe, Impressions of Irish History, the Atlantic Slave Trade and has been exhibited in Great Britain and Ireland.
His most recent work has been a study of the Greenwich Meridian as it crosses England providing a metaphor for modern life. The current exhibition at Fenton House features a selection of images from each of these projects.
An Italian Journey. This project traced major locations in Italy that were essential destinations for the Grand Tour. The work was inspired by the German writer Goethe's book about his Grand Tour in 1786-8. The complete work is comprised of 25 images many of which were printed using older printing techniques such as Platinum printing, Cyanotype, Bromoil etc. This darkroom-based work led to me being admitted to the Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society. (six of the images are shown in this exhibition)
Impressions of Irish History. This project took three years to complete and the full set comprises 64 images covering 10,000 years of Human History in Ireland, from the Stone Age to the Present Day. This work was exhibited in seven locations in Ireland and England. In the exhibition each image is accompanied by a relevant quotation from Irish Writing. Six images from the series are shown in the RPS exhibition.
Enslaved. Taken from a series of 24 images studying some aspects of the Atlantic Slave Trade, the four images in the exhibition provide an introduction to this tragic and shameful chapter in Western 'Civilization'.
Meridian. This work began in 2010 and follows the route of the Greenwich Meridian as it crosses 200 miles of South East England. Images made along the Meridian serve as a metaphor for life in Britain in modern times. The project will be completed by December 2012 and will comprise about 20 images of which four will be shown at Fenton House.
