Testimonials

“This is the first time that we have had an installation of this kind at Fenton House (RPS HQ) and it is certainly
generating debate. Nigel has used his photography to convey a hard-hitting message, as well as focusing
attention on the charity, in a unique way visually. His mode of presentation, which includes an image on a
concrete slab and a rolling film on screen as well as framed prints, engages the viewer very directly. There is
a real sense of a story unfolding asyou move around the exhibition and the unusual viewpoint of the images
draws the viewer in and does not fail to provoke a reaction and an emotional response”.
Lesley Goode, Exhibitions Manager, RPSBath

“A very thought provoking exhibition. While I wouldn’t hang the pictures in my lounge, I would put them in every boardroom in the country! Excellent stuff! “
Liz Hannel, New Zealand, of our times:the Price of Money
” On viewing Nigel’s proposal to exhibit at The Ropewalk I initially had doubts about whether or not to show his work. The quality and presentation of the photographs were undisputed but I had a few concerns over its suitability to our gallery and the fit of its theme to our rural location. The images were uncompromising

When the exhibition was actually hung and all the elements were in place my fears proved misplaced: the photographs in series led the viewer through a narrative journey that created a context for the more challenging images. Its theme struck a chord with a surprisingly large percentage of our visitors which showed how deep rooted its issues are. ”

Richard Hatfield, Barton Upon Humber, The Ropewalk
One unexpected outcome of the show was the amount of publicity it generated… …the exhibition was featured in national and regional publications and a local radio interview that was syndicated nationally. Together with recurrent word of mouth recommendations it resulted in a very successful show.

“Hi Nigel, Sorry I owe you an apology. I cannot stop thinking about your SOTS images this morning. Your thinking outside of the box definitely works and I needed overnight for the images to register. I am obviously too used to seeing straight documentary work. Your work was professionally presented and executed. So wishing you all the best with the exhibition and many congratulations for putting on an excellent, thought provoking exhibition. Well done.”
Tricia, York., Eye Spy, Workhouse Modern Gallery
