Photography Exhibition at The Sir Joseph Banks’ Centre in Horncastle, Lincolnshire from March 2nd to March 31st, 2015
Local photographer, Joanna Heselwood, is exhibiting some of her Lincolnshire-based work during March 2015 at the Joseph Banks’ centre in Horncastle (artworks of Lincoln Cathedral, Alford Windmill, Fenland Edges, Humber Bridge etc., as well as digital photoart are on display).
I find inspiration everywhere but especially in my flower-filled garden in a small village on the Fenland Edges near Horncastle, Lincolnshire – only a 100 yards’ walk from beautiful sunsets and wide-open skies.
Since rediscovering my love of photography a couple of years ago, I have won several prizes and commendations including Lincolnshire Life Photographer for 2013 and three of my photographs were included in their 2014 Calendar (the Humber Bridge, Gautby Beck at Dawn, and Wolds Sunrise). Amongst other awards, my photo of the Lincolnshire Wolds in snow was selected for the Virgin Balloons’ 2014 Calendar and Stormy Sky at Moggs Eye was highly commended in an EU-wide competition on Renewable Energy in 2013. I was a runner-up in the Construction Industry Council competition in 2013 with a black and white view across London. Most recently, My Front Garden in Spring and Harvesting Windfall won their categories in the Lincolnshire Gardens Trust competition in November 2014 and featured in the Lincolnshire Life Jan 2015 issue.
I also create ‘Love Lincolnshire’ photographic greetings’ cards, which are available in The Sir Joseph Banks’ Centre in Horncastle.
My framed pictures are on sale for £15 and make ideal gifts; profits will go to the Minting, Gautby and District Heritage Society.
