A couple who share a passion for photography are creating a special exhibition within which they will celebrate their wedding day.
Julia Cameron and Simon Marshall, who live in the Golden Triangle area of Norwich, will wed in a candlelit ceremony at Anteros Arts Foundation on Saturday, December 16, and they and their guests will enjoy the reception and the cutting of the wedding cake surrounded by the work they have created for their exhibition called Re:Generation.
Ahead of their big day the exhibition will also be open to the public from Tuesday, December 12.
“Our work is very different and this has brought it together in sharp focus for the future,” said 62-year-old Julia.
“The photographs will be hung in pairs, one of mine and one of Simon’s.”
Julia’s photographs are portraits of her family, including her 93-year-old father Hugh Davey, her late mother Mary Davey, her grandparents Harry and Ellen Davey and her great-grandparents Sam and Ann Davey.
She explained she has rephotographed old photographs and physically frozen the copies to reflect the importance of preserving memories.
“I do not have very many living relatives so this is also a way for my family to be at my wedding,” she added.
“I put the photographs in water and froze them in the freezer, then I took the photographs out and as they defrosted I rephotographed them to give them a new life.
“The photographs have all got a layer of ice around them. It is a metaphor.”
In contrast 64-year-old Simon’s photographs are striking close-ups of hands holding apples, oranges, passionfruit, figs and other fruit.
Together all the photographs will create a symbolic setting for the wedding of the couple who have been together for 15 years and first met playing recorders with the Society of Recorder Players at Christ Church Hall.
Julia said: “My photos are a look back at where I have come from and Simon’s look more at the future.
“His photographs are of hands holding fruit - it’s the fruits of the future.”
The Re:Generation exhibition will be open to the public from Tuesday, December 12 until Friday, December 15.
