Outdoor and mountain photography exhibition
The Global Images Gallery in Dorset, which focuses exclusively on outdoor and mountain photography, is holding two new exhibitions
The first exhibition at the gallery features images from Michael Bromfield who visited and photographed three sides of Mount Everest on a gruelling exhibition. The second exhibition centres on Africa and the photographic journeys that can be experienced on the vast and unpredictable continent.
The exhibitions will run from 1 February until the 1 June 2013 at the Global Images Gallery in Sherborne, Dorset.
For more information please see the press release below.
The Global Images Gallery located in historic Sherborne on the Dorset Somerset borders is Britain’s only gallery to focus exclusively on Mountain and Outdoor photography and with almost a thousand square feet of hanging area, the Gallery features images of the mountains, landscapes and peoples of all seven continents.
Two new Exhibitions are currently on display from February 1 until June 1.
Everest from Three Sides – Photographer Michael Bromfield is one of the few individuals fortunate to have been able to have visited all three sides of the world’s highest mountain. As well as having made multiple visits to Everest Base Camp in Nepal he has also followed the route of the early British expeditions from Rongbuk in Tibet on the north side of Everest, past Advance Base Camp and the North Col to the Raphu La at the foot of the Everest’s famed northeast ridge. He has also journeyed from the Village of Kharta on the east side of Everest across the Shoa La Pass and up the Kama Valley to the rarely visited East (Kangshung) Face of Everest.
Michael has shot tens of thousands of images in the Everest area and this exhibition gives visitors a rare opportunity to see images of many rarely visited areas around the world’s most famous mountain.
African Journeys – is a selection of images bringing to life the many contrasting faces of Africa. The exhibition includes images of Wildlife, Landscapes and peoples from Africa north and south, east and west.
Although the emphasis and ethos of the gallery is on viewing rather than selling, 10% of all sales will go directly to Third World Projects and the beneficiary of these exhibitions will be Community Action Nepal (www.canepal.org.uk) founded by Doug Scott, one of the first two British climbers to summit Everest in 1975.
