Rugged Faces

Gallery On The Green is pleased to present Rugged Faces – An Exhibition of Travel
Portraits by Ray Price – York Photographer of the Year. The exhibition showcases
16 powerful and thought provoking black & white portraits taken mainly in India.
They demonstrate the power of the face to arouse our curiosity for the person, our
longing to know more and to stretch our imagination.!
!
Ray say’s “Usually it’s the face that arouses our curiosity in the person, inspiring us
to want to know more about them, albeit that a photograph means we can’t; we
have to imagine who they are and every thing about them. I want my pictures to do
that, to promote thought about the person, rather than to just focus on the face, and
look beyond the surface. After all, we see hundreds of faces every day in our lives
without giving them a moment’s thought and Rugged Faces is a chance to do
otherwise”.!
!
Rugged Faces is at Gallery On The Green, Settle from Saturday 26 July until
Saturday 30 August 2014. For more details see www.galleryonthegreen.org.uk and
