Attend a Photography Exhibition in Croydon

One of our very own LofC members K Anthony, (better known by friends and family as Kema) is holding his first ever photography exhibition right here in Croydon. In a show of support and a chance to gain some inspiration from his work we will visit the exhibition followed by a drink next door in Spread Eagle pub.

Two Galleries showcasing the photographic works of K Anthony.

Gallery 1, displaying a mix of still life, portrait and abstract pieces taken from his projects over 2011 & 2012

Gallery 2, dedicated to St. Valentine’s

K Anthony, has been inspired by the arts since childhood, initially through acting, which continued into his early 20’s.

Working in I.T. gave little opportunity for expression, but his various writing projects and somewhat tacit acting works at Royal Court Theatre kept his enthusiasm alive.

Through his work in corporate events, he has travelled to many parts of the world. Every aspect of his work is influenced by the stark contrasts of life and living, in the many countries he has visited. However, his two most significant disappointments are his inability to express himself using his favourite mediums, music and painting. To this day, he is aware of his singing abilities being limited to approximately 5 notes. Furthermore, in spite of the efforts of a well known Parisian artist, his attempts at working with water colours and oils have always proved a hideous disaster.

It was eventually, in 1997 through photography that he found a means of expressing his view of the world, in all its splendour, beauty, oddities and contradictions. Whether it is a simple portrait photograph to capture the beauty of a subject, or a distant skyline delivering a mirage to fool the eye, K Anthony seeks to immortalise the presence, emotion and beauty of that moment. His simple belief that: ‘A room from a different perspective shows a new room’, displays in much of his work, as interesting angles and lighting are a common theme. Additionally, his capturing of the emotion of a subject is familiar in much of his photographs. Increasingly he has taken to extending the relationship between a photograph and its frame, such that the whole piece is presented as a unique statement of art. This promises to be more prominent throughout 2013.
