Welcome to Aquilino Moreno

StreetSeen continues to grow, and we are very pleased to announce the arrival of our seventh member – Aquilino Moreno.

Aquilino lives in Chester (which is nearly in north Wales!) His portfolio includes street photography, but encompasses other work, including landscapes, townscapes, commercial portraiture & weddings.

Aquilino’s full biography will be added very soon, but you can view his work in the meantime at his web site.

Welcome to StreetSeen, Aquilino!

Exhibition 2013 – Reactions

Our exhibition at Oriel Colwyn has been open for a few days, and we have already received some very encouraging feedback. Here are just a few of the lovely visitors’ comments that we’ve received:

“Inspiring – I shall get my camera out again and look with a street eye”

“Fabulous pictures – fascinating insight into what catches the attention of artists.”

“Brilliant work from some amazing local talent!! Great to see the images finally on display!!”

“Excellent insightful photography.”

“Very moving, powerful, raw, evocative – uplifting…. Superb exhibition!”

“Great to see the photographs “in the flesh” after seeing some of them on the web site. I love these photographs – scenes of people’s everyday lives are so interesting and thought provoking. Hope you’ll be exhibiting again sometime.”

Full details of the exhibition are here.

Opening Ceremony

The official opening ceremony for our exhibition at Oriel Colwyn, Colwyn bay, took place last night (Tuesday 24 September).

We are delighted to report that it went extremely well; there was a very good turn-out, with everybody seeming to enjoy our offerings of food, drink and street photography. The chat was very convivial, and the reactions to our work was all positive.

A huge thanks to everyone who came along to support us and especially Paul Sampson, Oriel Colwyn’s Curator, who went the extra mile to ensure that the exhibition is a success.

Thanks Paul!

Here are a few images, shot by our very own Roj Smith, to commemorate the evening.

Exhibition 2013

Oriel Colwyn logoFirst StreetSeen Exhibition: 23 Sept 2013 – 11 Oct 2013 – Oriel Colwyn

We were extremely excited and proud to present our first event, an exhibition, which took place from 23 September 2013 and ran for three weeks until 11 October 2013 at Oriel Colwyn, Colwyn Bay.

The exhibition consisted of 75 images from three of the then five StreetSeen members (there are now eight) – Roy Barry, Anne Muth and Graham Kidd, each of whom have their own distinctive approach to street photography.

You can now view all of the exhibition’s images here:

– and here are a few images, shot by our very own Roj Smith, to commemorate the opening evening.

The exhibition was a great success, and we are delighted with the unanimously positive feedback that we received, both at the event’s opening evening, and from subsequent comments by visitors to the exhibition. As it was the first time any of us had exhibited our work, we were understandably a little nervous, but having jumped the first hurdle, we’re looking forward to more opportunities to show our work.

We’re ready!

The preparations for our first exhibition, at Oriel Colwyn in Colwyn Bay, are complete. The pictures are on the gallery walls, ready for the start of the exhibition on Monday.

All we need now is – YOU!

Admission is free, so there’s really no excuse for not attending. You have three weeks, until Friday 11 October, so why not pop in and see what we’ve been up to?
