John Davies: Two Rivers at EDGEspace (formerly the International Gallery) Slater Street.
20 January – 16 February 2011
Internationally acclaimed photographer and artist John Davies
shows his work from the River Mersey and the River Taff. This documentary landscape exhibition of large-scale photographs of river environments celebrates the launch of the EDGEspace
The work features the River Mersey from where it forms beneath the M60 in Stockport following its course to Liverpool’s tidal estuary and The River Taff from its source in the Brecon Beacons to Cardiff Bay.
Some images where made before the substantial changes that have taken place alongside these two iconic rivers. From Liverpool’s now disused airport and old docks in 1986, to Cardiff’s 1990’s naturally changing tidal ‘Tiger Bay’ now re-branded and re-formed as a permanent waterfront feature with the construction of the Cardiff Bay Barrage.
This is the first time that the River Taff images have been exhibited in England.
