Hastings photographer among the prizes

Hastings-based photographer Chris Parker has won the top prize in the British Weather category at the prestigious British Life Photography Awards with his image of the Old Town net huts in a snow blizzard. Another of his photographs featuring the St Michael’s Hospice Santa Fun Run in Alexandra Park was highly recommended in the Street Life category.

Invoking generations of prayer

It is a tradition in St Leonards that a chair outside a shop signifies that it is open. At Lucy Bell Gallery, two chairs and a table are outside the gallery, but the windows are shrouded and it looks like there is nobody home. Gingerly, entering the darkened, candle lit room, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see what was happening.

Bruce Rae’s mysterious world

Enter the Lucy Bell Gallery and you walk into a dark, magical and mysterious world. The images arrayed around the walls are the new series of work from photographer, Bruce Rae. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to take a look.

A photographic sense of place

It is certainly to be welcomed that there is a new gallery space in Hastings – at the former Observer building. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went there, with great anticipation, to see the PhotoHastings exhibition Pinups: A Sense of Place.

Beauty in black and white

Audrey Hepburn – what an icon. There can’t be too many people who have not succumbed to the Hepburn style and charm. In photographs or film she was certainly a class act. And beautiful. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to Lucy Bell’s gallery to check out that enigmatic beauty in some previously unseen photographs taken in 1952 and 1964.
