From Saturday 4th October until Sunday 16th November 2014 local photographer Ewart Woolley will be sharing his eye catching array of photographs which highlight the beauty to the Forest of Dean, and Severn and Wye estuaries.

Ewart’s fascinating work focuses on the lighting extremes which can be found at dawn and dusk and he is always searching for that elusive natural detail. He photographs a wide variety of scenes, from bare metal to sensitive portraits and from mellow woodland to stormy seascapes.  He can often be found paddling on the Severn foreshore or tramping Forest tracks.

Commenting on his passion for photography, Ewart said: “As a science, technology and environment writer, I quickly decided that images were an important part of life.  I was still a teenager when I scraped the money together buy a Pentax K 1000… still a part of my kit today.”

Ewart has lived in the Forest of Dean since 1981 and has been recording the Forest landscapes ever since.  He runs regular practical photography workshops in the Forest, Bristol, the Cotswolds, Severn and Wye Valleys throughout the year.

Entry to the exhibition is included in admission to the Dean Heritage Centre.
