Guest Blog: by Pamela Hollis, Artist of the Week

An interest in photography was sparked by a visit to Claude Monet’s garden at Giverny in the late ’80s.

Several years and countless rolls of film later - the digital age has been a revolution in many ways, not least - the ability to take hundreds of images of any subject, anywhere, without the necessity to carry numerous rolls of film! It has also given many photographers the ability to create a range of artistic images using a computer. It is interesting - and hopefully helpful - to learn that David Hockney has totally embraced the new digital technology of the iPad, which he describes as ‘a new medium’, also commenting that “a pencil is technology” - “a brush is technology”.

The landscape of the Jurassic Coast, as well as the ever changing colours and moods of the sea are endless sources of inspiration, but pretty much anything can become an element of my digitally created artwork.

My first exhibition “Photography - The Next Dimension” was held at Eype Centre for the Arts, near Bridport, in 2009. I will be exhibiting 5 pieces of work Altered Images” at The Incident Room, 32 Salisbury Street, Blandford Forum DT11 7AR, between 3rd April and 26th May, Tuesday - Saturday 10.30am to 4.00pm. I do hope that some of you will be able to get there to have a look.

I discovered “The Shed” on a freezing cold January day in 2011 - I walked into the Malthouse Gallery where I found Chelsea, exhibiting, and working on, some of her amazing art...we got chatting and she told me about her plan for The Shed Photography website, I think I was the first person to sign up to be part of this exciting project! A year later it has become a wonderful showcase for a diverse range of images by a large number of photographers and artists.
