Theme:    REFLECTIONS

In photography, reflections, so intrinsic to the process of photography itself, has always been a major theme. So many of our famous street photographers have used the modern metropolis’ materials of glass, mirrors, metal, neon, (copper brewing kettles?!) etc. to explore interesting juxtapositions and comparisons or just play with light and shadow.

In this exhibition we would like to bring together a variety of images that focus on all aspects of reflection.
