The Collection. Photography Exhibition @ Marburae Gallery

Marburae Gallery will be holding the most playful photography exhibitions in Cheshire to date, showcasing for the first time, site specific 3D photography by Sam Paechter.

Sam replaces objects with large 3D photographs which have been distorted to give a strong impression that the object is really there – creating a fascinating and powerful interplay between the real world and illusion. Visitors will have the chance to experience Sam’s work at its best, with playful 3D images situated around the gallery space.

The collection presents the work of 11 photographers from all over the globe, as far away as South Korea. All 11 examine the world around them and capture its beauty with obvious flair.

Taken from Charlie Davies’ work The Collector, the title makes reference to the installations that will make the exhibition. The Collection is not a series a snapshots, but a collection of installations representing each photographer’s current practice.

To catch a glimpse of the 3D photographs or inspirational images captured by one of 11 national and international photographers, visit Marburae Gallery on Athey Street, Macclesfield.

The Collection’s exhibition open evening will take place at 7.00pm – 9.00pm on March 1st 2012. The exhibition will run from 2nd March until 7th April 2012. For more information please visit
