    Great exhibition and lots of different impressions to enjoy. Fun objects to guess at – spent a good while looking at these with friends and came up with wild ideas.

    Mr Steven has a keen eye and a very unique way of looking at things – it is indeed an artist’s way of observation – and translation. I was luckily able to talk to him at the exhibition opening: Mr Stevens does not use Photoshop at all, but does only work with the means (call it “gadgets”, if you wish) which his camera provides. He is used to taking thousands of images – call it “obsessive”. Obsessiveness is a typical character trait of serious artists. Distilling the work down to the pictures on show can not have been easy. And yes, the colours and angles might not be as in real life, but the artist is trying to capture his sense of perceiption here – his interpretation of the buildings and settings. This is not meant to be documentary photography. The images are emotional, very personal and gripping. He provides an insight into his mind – I am excited – and I do not get excited about photography that easily. His work does have a lot to do with painting – Expressionist painting in this case. A first exhibition by an impressive talent!

    Wonderful works by Michael Rand, a joy to behold. Not so for Mr Steven though, was he accidently locked in the church overnight? It seems either his camera has wonky white balance or he has over-indulged in the filters/adjust menus in photoshop.

    The exhibition is interesting, well curated and definitely worth seeing. Well done!
