The Curated Fridge is the brainchild of Yorgos Efthymiadis, a unique project with the aim of celebrating fine art photography and connecting photographers from around the world.

This exhibition was guest curated by Elin Spring – founder, editor and head writer of the photography blog “What Will You Remember?”, featuring exhibit reviews, curator and artist interviews, book reviews and commentary.

Here’s a photograph of The Curated Fridge in its entirety – my photograph is on the bottom door. You can see all of the photographer’s work on their websitefacebook page, and on their instagram feed.

Here’s also a link to their lovely video of afternoon shadows  coincidentally framing my image of afternoon shadows on the bottom door:  https://www.facebook.com/pg/thecuratedfridge/videos/

My photograph is from a sketch-series of images exploring the light, shadows, and layers of reflections that appear momentarily in my everyday environment, documenting the juxtaposition of plants and trees – cultivated and wild – with built structures.

To find out more about The Curated Fridge take a look at this interesting article on Lenscratch.

Thank you Yorgos and Elin for including my work in this show!

Honourable Mention for ‘No46 Bus (night), London’ at PH21 Gallery, Budapest

‘No46 Bus (night), London’ has been awarded an honourable mention in the new group exhibition by PH21 Gallery – City.

This juried international photography exhibition explores how urban spaces provide intensified experiences, how we shape our environment and how we live in the environment we create for ourselves.

The exhibition runs from 14 October – 3 November at

PH21 Gallery
Szkéné Theatre
Budapest University of Technology and Economics
H-1111 Budapest
Műegyetem rkpt. 3.
 
No46 nightbus, London

No46 Bus (night), London

Of my photograph, the juror’s review says “Nicola Jayne Maskrey presents a vivid, colourful impression of the city by night. The composition is shaped by motion itself, in a way we never actually see but often imagine or remember seeing a city. The person in the picture is faceless; she enters and then immediately exits our life, remaining a mere passing memory.”

This image is a recent addition to my very long work in progress – London Project/Traces – you can see more images from this series as well as other work on my instagram page.

 

Here’s also a photograph of the installed exhibition – looking very sharp!
