WHAT IS IT? Dead or Alive photography exhibition

WHERE AND WHEN IS IT?

Floor One Gallery, Rugby, September 4 to 15.

WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT IT?

Dead or Alive is presented by the Rugby-based photographers Gerry Coyle and Navin Mistry. The dead refers to the display of images showing the decay of common plants with a dash of surrealism mixed in and the live element features a series of portraits symbolising the evolution of man. The photographers have spent a year preparing the exhibition and the striking liquid effects were accomplished by Gerry after much experimentation with materials to get the realistic represention of sap from flora.

While the liquid is real, the colouring was aided by software.
