Exhibition - Bran Symondson @ IG Gallery

Went to the opening of Bran Symondson's work The Best View of Heaven is from Hell at the IG Gallery.
Really superb work. Soldier come photographer he had access to men and situations that enabled him to take some incredible pictures. I loved the powerful yet intimate images. For me an image is really powerful when you feel close to the subject without feeling like a voyeur. Not easy to achieve. I did manage to ascertain he spent a year taking these pictures. It is a war zone yet these are not war pictures or observer pictures or street pictures. They really are very special. This I would like to do.Very inspirational. I hope he produces a book.
