Ultrachrome K3 Photograph by Chris Harrison


Chris’ new photographic work develops the theme of searching out visual beauty in the often overlooked, ignored and incidental things which surround us in everyday life. Much of the subject matter has been found in working places around Norfolk – workshops, yards, rivers, harbours, farms etc; some is from further afield. He looks for the play of light and shade on different surfaces and textures, the interaction of man’s activity with natural processes, the brilliance and subtleties of colour, and the abstract qualities of underlying structure.

The paintings, which are the first Chris has produced since setting up Bircham Gallery in Holt twenty years ago, explore some of the abstract ideas that photography has suggested.
