Photographs by Martin Bond
and sculptures by Paul Harvey
10th June - 2nd July
Next up at cambridge contemporary art is an exhibition of photographs by Martin Bond and sculptures by Paul Harvey. Following the success of Martin Bond’s photography show in 2015, we are thrilled that he will be exhibiting his work with us again in June.
Martin Bond has lived in Cambridge all his life, and runs ‘A Cambridge Diary’, a project where he takes a photograph of Cambridge every day. The project has been running since 2010, and consists of over 2,500 photographs and counting.
Martin’s photographs show Cambridge as a city of both the ordinary and the extraordinary, often juxtaposing mundane everyday subjects with the remarkable grandeur of Cambridge’s architecture. Frequently playing with light and reflection, Martin’s photographs capture the atmosphere of a moment unique to the place and time that they were taken.
Visit Martin Bond's page on our website for an overview of all photographs in the exhibition. Of each photograph, there are 10 editions available. They can be ordered framed or unframed. Please contact us to find out more.
Martin will be at the gallery on Saturday 10th June to meet visitors. Do pop in for a chat about his lovely work!
Exhibiting with Martin is sculptor Paul Harvey. Paul’s focus in on birds – from blackbirds, terns and kingfishers to the more exotic ones like guinea fowls and amazons. He has been sculpting since the age of ten, having been introduced to woodcarving by a primary school teacher.
He soon realised that wood is not appropriate for the features of the birds he had in mind and turned to working in bronze and marble. Taking inspiration from Art Deco, Paul simplified his designs and created a unique and bold sculpting style.
