“Through the Lens” – an exhibition of photos by Roger Manthorp.

“My motivation when taking pictures is usually to record a particular moment in time in an attempt to preserve just what I saw.  My studies as an Art student, many years ago, made me very aware of the quality and value of light, shade, and colours and the effects these visual ingredients have when they fall onto subjects in front of me.  These combinations of events will never happen again in exactly the same way.  I see compelling images everywhere and I need to restrain myself from over-indulging upon them.”
