A photo essay on Brighton and Hove

5 Farm Mews
The smell and flames of a log fire outside in the freezing air welcomed us into the mews home of the Naked Eye gallery, where we were guests at the private view for Bernard J Webb’s photo essay on the city of Brighton and Hove.
Webb presents mono and colour impressions of the sea, sky, light and iconic shapes of the city in a mostly sombre, near-deserted wintry mood.
It’s mysterious and enigmatic work, dwelling on threatening clouds and waves, shape and form. The few people are shadows, silhouettes and a swirling blur, but this show isn’t about the people, it’s about the sea and the sky and the works people leave.
‘Wave slate grey sea and heavy cloud
‘Tempest’ sun lancing through to jade green waves
