AOP Elements Exhibition December 2012

Helen recently submitted two photographs from our Notworkrelated travels into the AOP’s winter online exhibition. This year the exhibition is titled ‘Elements’ and will run until the 15th January 2013. The brief was fairly open with the main theme being ‘elements’ interpreting this in whichever way we wanted to. It didn’t matter what time of the year it was taken, it could be a more abstract interpretation or something more literal. 26 photographers have been accepted into the exhibition and there is a really lovely body of work which is also on offer in limited edition print form.

Helen’s submission included two photographs taken whilst we were trekking in Nepal. ‘Rest’ was shot whilst we were on an acclimatisation work from Namche Bazaar to Thame. The weather closed in when we arrived and it was a beautiful site to see the village engulfed with snow. There was so much to draw us in photographically and the impact or The Sunshine Lodge covered in a light dusting of snow had to be documented.

The second image titled ‘Friends’ was taken whilst we were having more acclimatisation time higher up in the Gokyo valley at Dole. This was at around 4000m and there isn’t much to do once you arrive in these villages other than to recover, rest and acclimatise. Our great friends Joshua and Amata traveled with us for most of our trek and this was a very memorable thing that we did; all wrapped up warm in many layers, blankets, hats and gloves before the fire would be lit. We both love this image as it conveys such a lovely message of companionship to us and humour to others.

‘Rest’ has also been selected as the offical AOP Christmas card for 2012 much to our delight and Helen will be attending the exhibition launch and AOP Christmas social on the 18th December. What a lovely end to 2012!

We wish you all a wonderful Christmas, this is our first back on English soil for 2 years! Looking forward to 2013 and what it will offer!
