Behind the Photograph with Charlie Waite
Ebenezer is delighted to welcome Dorset-resident
Charlie Waite, one of the world’s leading landscape photographers for a spectacularly illustrated lecture.
Charlie's work spans 40 countries and is a unique account of light, landscape and place.
It's a remarkable collected body of work, full of insight and wonder.
In this lecture, Charlie tours his work and the world revealing his thought processes and his techniques, binding them into stories and sharing the anxieties and the joys which accompany their creation.
It is an opportunity to see into the process of a master craftsman and for grassroots photographers to gain fresh technical insight and inspiration into how it's done. For all of us non-photographers it’s a fantastic tour of an artist's creativity and his intense relationship with the world around him.
Ebenezer’s big screen and high res projector are going to light up for this one and the format of this flyer simply cannot do Charlie's work anything like justice. Please visit his website gallery to get an idea of what's in store...
Charlie is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and founder of UK Landscape Photographer of the Year.
“It’s like I tell my granddaughters - life should be lived in a permanent state of wonder. Take part in the existence of things.”
His photographic style is often considered to be unique, in that his photographs convey an almost spiritual quality of serenity and calm. Waite’s photographs are held in private and corporate collections throughout the world, and he has held numerous solo exhibitions at prestigious venues in the UK, Japan and the USA. With over 30 books to his name, Waite’s distinctive images are recognised around the world and his work has received wide critical acclaim over many years.
In 2000 Waite was awarded the prestigious honorary fellowship to the British Institute of Professional Photographers. He is also a sought after writer, public speaker and television presenter, and has featured in numerous photographic and broadsheet publications, DVDs and television programmes.
‘Waite’s landscapes are rare perfections of light, colour, and composition, and offer the viewer a luxuriant portrait of a planet at peace.’ Royal West of England Academy of Art Magazine
