Award for Tim Myers at Wirral Spring Art Show 08

NavelStone200.jpgPhotographer, Tim Myers, awarded prize at Wirral Spring Art and Photographic Exhibition

This ‘Navel Stone’ photograph by Tim Myers is one of the highlights of this year’s Wirral Spring Art & Photography exhibition at the Williamson Gallery in Birkenhead. Awarded a Highly Commended, ‘The Navel Stone’ is tranquil study of light and form which captivates the viewer with its geometric yet organic shapes.

Photographer Tim Myers is particularly proud of this picture. “I spent a memorable week photographing Arran which is a fantastic place, and The Navel Stone is one of my favourite images from that trip”.

As ever, the Wirral Spring Art and Photographic Exhibition attracted a wide range of subject matter and techniques, which forms an exceptional display of work. “The standard of work entered to the exhibition was very high this year; and I am very honoured that ‘The Navel Stone’ has been given this award”, says Tim.

Using traditional film cameras, Tim prides himself in producing images without using any post-processing techniques, and ‘The Navel Stone’ is no exception to this way of working. ‘The Navel Stone’ has been presented at the exhibition as a hand-printed image; offering an impressive presence due to its size and the sharpness and clarity of the print.

The exhibition runs from 26th April until Sunday 1st June, open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm, and is open on the Bank Holiday Mondays. It is at the Williamson Gallery, Slatey Road, Birkenhead and admission is free.

Tim Myers is a local photographer who specialises in landscape photographs of the Wirral. Collections of his work, including ‘The Navel Stone’, are available to buy online at , and also at Dee Fine Arts in Heswall, The Stables Gallery at Brimstage and at Enigma Gallery One in Bebington.
