Solo show 'Still' by Annemarie Hope Cross.

There are occasions in life when one needs to be still. 

During such a time in my own life, I have had the opportunity for much contemplation. Many memories have come to mind, often sparked by precious objects such as bottles of photographic chemicals from my grandfather, or a bottle of perfume my father gave my mother. Bottles are receptacles for many things; healing herbs and medicines, darkroom chemicals, perfumes, nourishing creams,  foods and wine.  To me they speak of memories, and are perhaps allegories for life itself. Made with a “mousetrap” camera in our garden and using a technique 180 years old, these photographs necessitated still-ness in the making; each exposure required up to 8 hours in autumn sunshine.

In the stillness, I have found healing and wellbeing.
