The exhibition “People and Places” at the O’Connor Group Art Gallery brings together the figurative photography of Graham Dowden and the landscape painting of Jeff Wilson. Photographs of people in public places aim for a spontaneity that sometimes hints at the private life behind the public persona. In contrast, landscape painting is a more deliberate analysis of light and colour that aims to reflect the broader world. This exhibition combines these separate traditions in a setting which emphasizes not their differences but what they have in common.
