“Still Life” by Graham Russell

Congratulations to Graham Russell whose image “Still Life” received an Honourable Mention in our recent “No Label” Photographic Competition.  

Graham Russell Photographer

“I have been living in Cornwall since 2012 having previously lived in Oxford and had a career in Housing Management for 24 years,” Graham explains. “Currently my projects take the form of sculptures, photos, drawings and digital prints. Much of the work looks at objects or settings from a different point of view. Although I don’t describe  myself as a photographer and I don’t own a state of the art camera I do use photography in my art. I typically I use a smart phone or an old Olympus  camedia  camera. I have exhibited at the Exchange volunteer  shows over the past three years, at the Redwing for two shows and a show at Morvah  in 2016. I seldom throw fruit away if it gets beyond eating as I dry it and incorporate into a piece of art. Still Life is one such collection.”

A framed and mounted print of “Still Life” will be exhibited at the Alverton Gallery, Penzance, Cornwall UK during May 2017 along with the remaining top ten winning competition entries.

“We were having lunch in the Queen’s Head last July on a glorious summer day,” Brian explains, “when the dog wandered out of the Post Office and lay down to enjoy the sun – until then the view across the little square was pleasant enough, but the dog added that certain something that transformed it into a memorable scene just begging to be photographed.”
