Guest Artist Jill Reidy exhibition now on at Blott

From May to June, the Blott gallery welcomes another guest artist, photographer Jill Reidy.   Reidy's startlingly vibrant photographs currently on exhibition were produced on a visit to Havana, Cuba, last year.

Jill Reidy 'Washing Day'

“I have never felt so excited to be in a city with my camera.  Every corner reveals something interesting that begs to be recorded. Beautiful buildings crumble and decay; poor but proud Cubans swagger past in brightly coloured shirts; beggars and dealers approach tourists with offers that are hard to refuse.  Classic American cars race along the roads.  Even in the midst of such obvious poverty, where people hang their washing on balconies that lean and sag, and lower baskets to the ground where they are filled and hauled back up, there is a real colour and energy about the city.”
