Lomography UK’s July exhibition will feature work from analogue photographer, Richard Heeps. In his Man’s Ruin collection, Heeps explores retro Americana imagery in vibrant, immediate photos. Working largely with rare, end-of-line films, Heeps travelled the US, capturing this collection on his Mamiya RB67 and Nikon FM2 cameras. Join us for the opening night on Thursday July 4th.
MAN’S RUIN BY RICHARD HEEPS
4 JULY 2013 – 26 JULY 2013
Richard Heeps’ seductive, highly-saturated colours and sophisticated pictorial structures demonstrate a true love and empathy for this subject matter – be it cool, descriptive interiors, still life or landscape. His distinctive style pushes the limits of lens-based photography without the need for digital manipulation.
Heeps has worked as an artist for over 20 years, exhibiting in across the country in galleries including Rochester Art Gallery, The Photographers’ Gallery, London, amongst others. His work has also featured in The British Journal of Photography, The Times, and The Independent, with commissions by the ICA and Portobello Books. He lives and works in Cambridge.
Don’t miss on the opening party of this exhibition on July 4th from 6-9pm as part of the first Thursdays events. It’s free entry and there will be complimentary drinks courtesy of Rekorderlig cider.
