Ocean Seen - Oceanic Photography Exhibition

Sponsored by Wightlink - Dimbola Museum & Galleries - 29th June to 2nd September 2012

By Jason Swain.

Just in time for the summer sailing season - A collaborative summer show, bringing together three great oceanic photographers to celebrate the way we interact with our great British coastline.

From spending the day walking its beautiful shores and admiring the breathtaking landscapes - to riding the waves for a thrill on a high speed yacht, or looking at the hero's that weather the coasts day in day out to keep us safe and also those that provide us with the 'catch of the day'.

The exhibition, which is curated by Kimberley Piggott (Exhibitions Coordinator JMCT) and features the diverse work of photographers Jason Swain, Rick Tomlinson and Nigel Millard.

A few things people have said about my work

"Photos of amazing beauty and a divine simplicity"

"Jason's site is full of great images revealing an awareness and constant regard for nature, light, and form. Whether he is capturing people in action, or clouds, lazily floating across the sky, a great sense of emotion can be found in the images Jason captures."

"There is a great wisdom in Jason's photographs- a breath of fresh sea air to start the day with!"

"Jason is above all a truly gifted compositional photographer who magnifies his excellent sense of scale, balance and interest with stellar but subtle post-processing."

"It would be a beautiful addition to anyone's wall, Jason. The composition, textures, colors and mood are wonderful."

"Jason has an amazing creative eye when it comes to the ocean and its scenery. His photos calm me during a hectic day at work. He gives me a welcome break from the rat race during the working week"
