Contemporary photographic exhibition.

An exhibition celebrating dance movement and dance photography by four world leading international photographers.

This special exhibition will feature the works of John Swannell, Terry O'neill, Roy Round and David Montgomery.
Terry O'neill and David Montgomery are regular exhibitors, but this is the first time John Swannell and Roy Round have exhibited in Tristan's Gallery.

This seasonal exhibition has been specially curated by gallery director Edward Davis and brings to a close our celebration for five years of trading. The exhibition includes John Swannell's Rodin Series 1991, which will sample what's to come in the spring, when Swannell will have a solo exhibition of his work in the gallery. Alongside this series, the group exhibition will also feature Terry O’Neill's stunning portraits of dancers Rudolph Nureyev, Alicia Markova and Baryshnikov. His beautiful portraits have already been well received in the gallery. Roy Round is a world leading dance photographer with a strong background in fashion. His work combines a subtle sensuality with a sharp understanding of contemporary high fashion, captured with an elegance, which underlines Roy’s work. David Montgomery well known for his celebrity portraits will add the finishing touches to this unique exhibition, with images displaying ballet costumes commissioned by Diaghilev and themselves designed by Picasso, Shegall, Miro and Matisse; lost for 20 years and rediscovered by Richard Buckle. Among the ballet dancers featured wearing the costumes are again, Rudolph Nureyev and Anthony Dowel.

Unusually this exhibition will be the first time that this collection has ever been shown. It is an achievement to have bought these photographers together creating an eclectic and exciting mix of contemporary photography an exhibition not to be missed.

Exhibition runs from the 25th November 2006 until January 13th 2007,
Opening Monday – Saturday 10.00 – 16.00. Closed Christmas day, Boxing day and New years day.
