A programme of visits is being planned for the Summer 2021 but will be dependent on government guidance. Members will be kept informed via the website, the Newsletter and the members’ preferred communication method. Other Events are listed in our News page under the Category – Other Events.
This exhibition of Nick Knight’s large-scale, painterly photographs displays the rose as an enduring symbol of beauty.
British fashion photographer, Nick Knight’s constant desire to experiment, push boundaries and challenge his audience has led him to take up a new subject, the classic rose – but expressed in an entirely new way.
His ‘Roses from my Garden’ series is inspired by the work of 16th and 17th century still life painters like Jan Brueghel the Elder and Jan van Huysum, but these large-scale works could not be more contemporary, dramatising the timelessness of nature.
Nick Knight cuts selected roses straight from his garden and arranges them specifically, using only daylight to illuminate his subject. Photographed on an iPhone, the digital images are enlarged and filtered through software that uses AI to infill the space between pixels. What appears at first glance to be a historical approach to flower photography is actually at the very cutting edge of imaging technology.
Free with pre-booked grounds admission. https://www. waddesdon.org.uk/your-visit/tickets
