A young photographer from Freckleton is hoping to get his career off to a flying start
with an exciting exhibition of his work at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery in
Bertram Greenhough, 21 is a student of photography at the University of Central
Lancashire. His "Natural Opposites" exhibition, which previews at the Harris on
Monday 21 October and runs until Saturday 30 November, is a real eye-opener which
leads people to view ordinary objects in a whole new light.
"It's an idea I developed in my second year of study", says Bertram. "By presenting
everyday organic objects in a new light, the photographs stir people's imaginations and
encourage them to take more notice of their surroundings."
A former pupil of Carr Hill High School and Blackpool and the Fylde College, Bertram
spent a year in Germany attending language school and working for a theatre and a
photographic designer, before beginning his degree course in 2000.
His exhibition is to be opened by former High Sheriff, Lady Shuttleworth, a member of
the University Board and longstanding friend of Bertram's grandfather, another former
High Sheriff of Lancashire.
Bertram adds: "As a young and struggling artist, I feel honoured to be staging my first
exhibition at an important local gallery like the Harris. I'm very grateful for the support
of both the museum and the University in helping me to achieve this."
