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.
