Tessa Shaw, journalist, TV presenter, author and now artist is putting her photographic work on display in a new exhibition entitled ‘Living Structures’, in our office on the Kingsland Road.
Tessa’s experience in interior design and fashion journalism, as well as her study of photography at St Martin’s, has given her a keen creative eye.
Nature is at the heart of Tessa’s photographic work, using natural materials like petals and leaves to create cyanotypes . A cyanotype is an old fashioned form of photography where the subject of the photograph is laid on top of chemicals before it is exposed to light.
Depending on the length of exposure and the strength of the light, the effect created will be different every time, except for one factor; they will always be a shade of blue. The resulting images are both arresting and ethereal.
To see Tessa’s work on display please pop in to our office at 311-313 Kingsland Road from Wednesday 12th November.
