A new exhibition of fine art photography has opened at Erewash Museum’s Lally Gallery featuring the work of local lensman Howie Johnson.
The new collection, once again inspired by life and nature, showcases different techniques in the art of photography all stamped with Howie’s own unique style.
Howie uses computer technology to change and recreate his images into works of art, with many visitors to his exhibitions thinking the images are watercolours.
The featured works challenge the viewer to reflect on the images and see more in them, from creatures amongst the twists and turns of twigs and the scales on the bark of trees to flowers turned into diving eagles.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
“This new collection by Howie Johnson is once again fascinating and thought-provoking. His work is inspired by nature and the life around us and his final images encourage us to look beyond what we first see.”
