40 Years & More In The Taking - A Retrospective Of John Thornton

   40 Years & More In The Taking
A Retrospective Of  Photographic Images
John Thornton

This retrospective of John Thornton's advertising and personal work is really worth seeing , a mixture of humour and good old fashioned 'ideas' jump off the walls at you. I was particularly impressed with the quality of printing, especially the B/W silver bromides made by  Mr Bell.

You can read the very amusing 'History Of John Thornton' on the LPA website along with The Provenance Of 300 Voyers one of his most celebrated images.

There are numerous other stories about John Thornton, and where he came from, some claim he was found as a baby floating on a bamboo raft off Australia, and was brought up by aborigines, and they taught him photography, all we know that his images are truly unique. Don’t miss them at his retrospective in Soho, London in June.

Linda Lieberman's SOLO SHOW ‘A Sea of Awareness' taking place in Florence has been extended until
30 June 2011


I'm delighted to invite you to my photographic solo exhibition "A Sea of Awareness" on show in Florence at La Corte Arte Contemporanea Gallery from May 27th until June 30th 2011.

This event would provide the visitor with the opportunity of experiencing the vibrant artistic spirit of a beautiful Renaissance town combined with some intense and fascinating photography, as well as participating in the cultural debate on the threats nature faces every day and reflecting upon the awareness of how our every day actions affect the environment. This exhibition marks the opening of a forthcoming programme of artistic exchanges between London and Florence: selected artists will be invited to show their work, enhancing the cultural bonds between arts institutions and creative people from the 2 countries.

Linda Lieberman: A Sea of Awareness

Scottish photographer Linda Lieberman's solo show explores and stimulates social, economic and environmental sustainability towards more respectful and environmentally-aware behaviour. Linda creates intense black and white sculpture-like images peering into the indissoluble bond between nature and man, drawing inspiration from the constant climate change and the dramatic challenges nature faces.

Woman is sea and sea is woman: Linda photographs woman as the sea, the softness of the sea foam, the curves of the waves, the jagged edges of fish become one with the body of the woman. She shows us the special relationship between the sea and woman. Woman is the creator of life, the feeder of the world, the comforter - she gives and gives and gives, just as the sea is evolution, giving generously and unendingly.

It is an honour for me to be invited to Italy to showcase my work.  As this is major European exhibition for me please do pass on the details to anyone you may think of living or visiting Florence.

Lots of love
