Wednesday 15th April to Saturday 25th April 2015, Open 10.30am to 4pm daily, closed Sunday and Monday

Minchinhampton photographers, Paul and Helen Green are putting on their third exhibition as Thresholds Photography, Lives, Light and Biodiversity, in Lansdown Gallery, Stroud from 15th to 25th April. Previous exhibitions have been described as, “beautiful”, “inspiring”, “magic”, and “thought provoking, challenging the viewer to reflect on how we perceive the world around us”. Between commissioned work, they like to work on projects that have significance to them and the work of  Stroud Valleys Project is close to their hearts.

Trees - P GreenPaul’s images evoke a real sense of place, drawing on his active involvement with Stroud Valleys Project over the last 5 years. The main sites he has worked on are Rackleaze Nature Reserve, a pocket of unimproved wet grassland nestling between the river Cam and a supermarket car park and the Stonehouse Newt Ponds, a collection of ponds that are home to a significant population of great crested newts. Both places offer an abundance of wildlife habitats that could easily be overlooked. Paul’s images show the work that goes into the sites to manage them, encourage biodiversity and make them accessible as public green spaces.

Helen’s experience as a portrait photographer under the Helen Green Photography banner led her to approach the project from a different angle, to recognise the valuable contribution made by people, whether they are trustees, volunteers, project officers or managers. Helen said, “I wanted to show them in their working clothes, being themselves, letting their individuality shine through. I met some great characters. Having started out asking people to think seriously about the environment, most of them ended up laughing - they really enjoy what they do!”

Helen and Paul would love you to come along and have a look at their work. Entry is free and in order to support the great work they do, 10% of print sales from the exhibition will be donated to Stroud Valleys Project.
