NATURAL BEAUTY IN FOCUS.
A PHOTOGRAPHER has landed her first gallery exhibition.
Golcar woman Di Carey is exhibiting her work at the Bingley Gallery in the town until June 19.
Di, who was born in Winnipeg in Canada and was raised in Kent, has used her work to showcase the natural beauty of the Colne and Holme valleys, its industrial past and urban views from West Yorkshire towns.
Amidst those on display are a picture of defiant sheep, a Slaithwaite mill, Buckstones and Blackmoorfoot Reservoir.
Di does not use Photoshop for any of her images and applies only a light touch when editing to ensure the final result is as close to the original scene through the viewfinder as possible.
"I love the spontaneity of photography, the quirks of fate but also the contemplative aspect of the discipline.
"Any form of visual art involves the maker looking long and hard, otherwise it can't speak to others, in my view.
"I'd like to thank Jane Fielder from the Bingley Gallery for giving me the opportunity to show my work."
The exhibition is the latest coup for Di, whose work has appeared in the media in publications such as the Examiner and in national newspaper The Observer.
Last year she won an Arts Council Collection prize with a photo on Englishness.
The gallery is open to the public every Thursday and Friday from noon until 6pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm.
