True Nature, a photographic exhibition by Andy Summers
UCC Library welcomes an exhibition by guitar legend and Photographer, Andy Summers. The exhibition, True Nature, is part of the Cork Photo Festival 2018.
The exhibition, True Nature, is a series of black and white abstract plant still lifes which Summers explains thorough his childhood obsession with nature: “For years I roamed the rivers and woods around my home in rural England making notes, looking at things through binoculars - and making maps. My mental landscape was filled with nature. At that age I thought of myself as a naturalist, a student of the natural world. For most of my hectic life as a musician with its mostly urban scenarios those times remain as a sort of Eden.” Summers states that his photography may indeed be influenced by his absorption with music and that in a sense the photography he creates is a visual counterpart to the music that never leaves his head.
This is the first time that Andy Summers has exhibited in Ireland. He has been active as photographer since 1979 with numerous exhibitions including at the Leica gallery in Los Angeles, Paris/LA Independent Photo Show, Kunst.Licht Gallery in Shanghai, CCC Gallery in Beijing and Photokina in Cologne, Germany. The exhibition will run in UCC Library until Sunday 17 June.
