Octavo's Book Cafe and Wine Bar
A new exhibition of photographs by leading Welsh photographer Nick Treharne opens on Friday 2nd November at 6.30pm and runs until 30th November at Octavo’s Book Cafe & Wine Bar in West Bute Street, Cardiff.
The exhibition showcases a selection of images taken by Nick as part of an ongoing project documenting the diverse nature of contemporary life in Wales.
Highly regarded by fellow photographers, Nick’s work has been exhibited in the National Museum in Cardiff, and this new exhibition provides an engaging insight into the richly diverse nature of life in Wales. From the historic to the whimsical, Nick has an exceptional talent for capturing images of people in a way that embodies the essence of the moment in a creative and highly engaging way.
By utilising a broad documentary style, Nick allows himself the freedom to create images that truly reflect the rich tapestry of life. As Nick explains, “For me being able to capture images that have depth and interest is part of the passion that drives my photography. Whenever I head out to take photographs, it’s always with the excitement of not knowing what will be in my camera at the end of the day.”
On the opening evening Nick will be will be talking about the collection, and he explains: “As Wales continues to embrace its own identity and culture, I feel it’s important to create a body of work that truly celebrates life in Wales in as many of its different guises as possible. As an ancient nation I find it fascinating to see how people continue to passionately embrace our traditions, and this is something Wales can be truly proud of. In contrast, with modern Wales I delight in seeing the ways people engage in their passions and interests. For me this is true diversity and bringing the images together does, I believe, help to strengthen our understanding of Wales and the people who make our country so very special.
The exhibition is free to attend and is open daily from 8.30am – 6pm weekdays and 10am – 5pm at the weekends.
