Opening Reception: Thursday, May 31, 2007, 18.00-20.00

The ArteF Fine Art Photography Gallery is devoting its latest exhibition to a classic of artistic contemplation - the landscape. The motif being followed in many different variations and interpretations in forty black-and-white and colour photographs from the twenties to the present day is one that over the course of history has fascinated artists of every genre and until today still has the power to captivate.

Sometimes prosaic, sometimes playful, sometimes melancholy or even poetic, these heterogeneous works together make up a harmonious whole, granting a surprising insight into the many different facets of landscape photography. The eyes of the beholder are opened up to the world that surrounds them and they crave for more.
