Tuesday 3rd January - Sunday 8th January 2017

Signal Arts Centre is delighted to be exhibiting works by Stephen Marshall.

I have always loved taking photographs. My camera is a Canon EOS 60D DSLR and it has 18 megapixels. It can take pictures at an exposure time of one thousandth of a second. This means that I can freeze motion as you can see in my photos on display and hence the title "Still Motion".

I have a psychiatric illness called depression and taking photographs takes me out of myself and it actually makes me feel better about myself. I would recommend that anyone with mental health difficulties should have a hobby, especially photography.

I love taking photographs of birds in flight as it is quite a challenge to capture the flying motion and of course there is a bit of luck involved. I also like taking pictures of flowers and my largest picture (24 inch by 24 inch) is a red rose. The Blood Red Moon was taken on the 28th of September 2015 at 3.30am from my front garden in Kill O'The Grange. Finally, I have two pictures taken in twilight at dusk of O'Connell Bridge and The Harp Bridge in Dublin City.

Opening Reception: Thursday 5th January 7 - 9 pm

All Welcome!
