Sub-Saharan journeys - 3 Bedfordbury Gallery
AN EXHIBITION of photographs by John Kenny, Sub-Saharan journeys, is on display at 3 Bedfordbury gallery in Covent Garden until Saturday, July 31, 2010.
In 2006, John Kenny undertook an extended trip in Africa. His route took him from Durban in South Africa to the sand dunes of Namibia and the mountains and cultures of Ethiopia. He is continuing to build on a body of work from his recent travels through Asia.
He has a passion for simple and beautiful composition, illuminated by natural light. His images provide an emotional insight into daily life.
Speaking about his work, Kenny said:
“Travelling through some of Asia’s forgotten countries was an incredible experience. Trying to capture the essence of local people in a spontaneous and candid manner was challenging, but these moments cannot be forced. I purposefully abandoned any strict themes; my aim was just to photograph ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Sometimes, every once in a while, a beautiful moment occurs.”
Times: Daily from 11am to 6pm.
