Female form exhibited at Whyte's Framing and Gallery
A photographic exhibition of the female figure in black and white by local photographer Bryan Walwork will be on display at Whyte's Framing and Gallery until Jan. 25.
Interpreting the human form has long been considered one of the most challenging undertakings for an artist to pursue and artistically photographing the human form arguably presents a photographer's greatest challenge.
Bryan's exhibition presents an intellectual approach to the nude female body as an esthetic expression of beauty, drawing heavily on the classical art image of the nude.
He says: "To me, the beauty of the human body is best represented by the female form and I have endeavoured to produce images which convey my expression of that beauty."
Walwork became interested in photography at age 12 when he learned about developing and printing in the darkroom. Since then, he has embraced new technologies and his photography has evolved to cover a wide range of subjects.
His studio lighting skills were honed in Vancouver, where he shared studios with other photographers. Eventually he began conducting studio lighting and portrait workshops to teach other photographers these skills.
Following his retirement to the Comox Valley in 2002, he has continued to conduct workshops in his private studio.
Currently president of the Comox Valley Camera Club, he is able to share his knowledge and enthusiasm with many others. Bryan describes himself as a generalist, but studio photography is where he most enjoys working.
Whyte's Framing and Gallery is at 1225 Lazo Rd. in Comox. For details, contact them at 250-339-3366 or visit www.whytesframing.com.
