Tim Watts – Following The Light – A Photographic Journey
January 13, 2018 – March 2, 2018
This January, Applecrate Galleries will be hosting an exhibition that is sure to leave you awestruck. The exhibition will be featuring the large format photography of, well-known photographer Tim Watts.
Having grown up in British Columbia, Tim always enjoyed being outdoors hiking and exploring the backcountry. Things haven’t changed much over the years, except for his desire to explore deeper into the backcountry. It’s while he is exploring in the woods that he can capture the beauty of nature around him. Tim always has his backpack full of his camera gear, weighing him down, but with him just the same, as he does not want to miss a photographic opportunity.
No longer content to merely capture the beauty of a breaking wave or piercing sky, Tim strives to capture the moments that can be cherished, remembered and shared with people from around the world through social media.
Making use of the latest in high-end digital cameras and post-processing image development techniques, Tim is free to capture the amazing scenery around him with rarely seen clarity and amazing depth of light. It’s through this process that the artist inside comes through to develop the scene as imagined within his mind. It’s while pushing these boundaries that he makes his mark within the local art community. Subtlety has no place in Tim’s art. In his mind, the scenes he captures and share are meant to be larger than life, to jump off the walls with their clarity, vibrancy and depth.
“Photography is all about the light.
See it. Capture it. Develop it. Appreciate it”.
– Tim Watts
While exploring nature and the back-country, Tim believes in leaving no trace. It’s very important to be able to visit and leave nature as he experienced it and to leave it for others to experience after him with having left no trace of having been there.
Come join us on January 13, 2018 from 6–9pm to celebrate Tim and his magnificent large scale images. It will be a great opportunity to get out of the cold of winter and to be transported to other (sometimes warmer) parts of this big blue marble of this world of ours. The vernissage is open to everyone, and we will be serving complimentary refreshments throughout the evening.
The exhibition will be showing until March 2, 2018.
