Stunning Cromer pictures in photo show

The county's top photography talent is holding an exhibition to show case the unique landscapes in Norwich and Norfolk.

Entitled PhotoEclectic, the display features David Morris, a former professional photographer of the year, and John Higgins, who specialises in panoramic images capturing 360 degree views on Norfolk.

The pair decided to join forces after meeting at Cromer's Garden House Gallery, where they are both artists in residence.

Mr Higgins said: 'Although we photograph many of the same places, our approach is very different.

'But, because we are both fascinated by Norfolk's amazing and captivating light and we both try to get that unique take on what might be a very familiar scene, I think our work complements one another's perfectly.

'What is nice about St Margaret's is that it is a big venue with unusual light and I think bringing contemporary work into a Medieval setting is a fantastic idea.'

Norfolk-born John Higgins spent 20 years as a computer analyst before becoming a full-time photographer.

As well as photographing the county, he also spends his time capturing scenes in Aldeburgh and Southwold.

Meanwhile, David Morris works in the exhibition include waves battering the rocks on the Norfolk coastline and a storm-filled sky looming over Cromer Pier. He said: 'I am an available light photographer, and that means I work with whatever I'm given, whether it's the glorious big light of the Norfolk coast, the misty first light of the Broads, or the dark, atmospheric interior of a smoke-filled bar in Amsterdam.'

Mr Morris, who was named Professional Photographer of the Year in 2009, won the reportage section of the Black and White Photographer of the Year competition in 2010 for his image of a pair of Cotswolds sheep farmers.

The show, which opened its doors to the public yesterday, is being held at St Margaret's Church, St Benedicts Street, Norwich,

It runs until Saturday, May 7 and is open from 10am to 5pm daily.
