The Priory Rooms are delighted to now have on display in their meeting and conference rooms a selection of images from local photographer Lee Benson’s “Right Place, Right Time” collection.
Each image is a snapshot of Birmingham by local photographer Lee Benson FRSA. Several of the pieces are special commissions for The Priory Rooms observing Quaker heritage within the region.
All of the photographs displayed are taken by Lee, except “The Owl” and the “Four Boatman” which are by Dr Rob Galvin. As observationists, the camera is only an extension of what these two photographers see and capture. The images are not staged or manipulated. Nature and being in the right place at the right time are the very essence of their photography.
This collection is aimed to inspire us all to take a moment to admire the beauty around us. So often we walk around with our thoughts locked inside and see almost nothing of the landscape surrounding us. The photographs capture how sunlight beautifully highlights features of nature and city landmarks; a moment of tranquillity and calm within the busy city centre. This imagery reflects the peaceful and harmonious Quaker approach to life.
Lee and Rob came together in 2011 with likeminded views on photography. They exhibited their first collection on a narrow boat in Gas Street Basin. This was followed by an outdoor exhibition of twenty four photographs located around Brindleyplace which ran for several months. Both events were a success and since then Lee has continued to exhibit his work along with his other passion, painting in watercolours.
Book your next meeting or conference at The Priory Rooms to enjoy Lee Benson’s photographs by calling the team on 0121 236 2317. Lee may be contacted on 07970 142 703 or email email@example.com. Images may be ordered and commissions considered.read more
