Exhibition: ‘Brief Encounters’
21 April | 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until 13 May 2018
Open Daily between 11am and 3pm from 1 April to 13 May
The Goods Shed Tetbury are very proud to be holding an extremely special photographic exhibition by the renowned Cotswold-based photographer, Mark Fairhurst.
Mark has photographed some of the most recognised people on the planet. This will be the first time he has shown some of his extensive portraiture collection.
From 1 April, for six weeks, you will be in the photographic “presence” of Queen Elizabeth II, Charles Prince of Wales, Countess Bathurst, Alex James, Keith Allen, Raymond Blanc, Sir James Dyson, Julian Lloyd Webber, Kevin McCloud — in fact probably the largest collection of famous names you will see in one place at any one time!
“Brief Encounters” displays images taken on a one-to-one basis, often only with a short time to prepare the set on location.
“It’s a challenge to create a relaxed atmosphere other than in a studio,” says Mark.
“I would never have thought that I would be in front of so many famous people in my career. Five per cent photographer, 95 per cent psychologist is a requirement in my job, I quickly learnt”
Mark and Zeitgeist Images
Mark created Zeitgeist Images in 2012.
His artworks are in collectors homes and offices around the globe: his sense of humour, drama and keen eye on life in general being appreciated by many.
Mark has also been commissioned for the following projects:
- Penguin Publishing: images for Tour de France winner Chris Froome’s autobiography, “The Climb”.
- Bloomsbury Publishing’s best selling cycling title, “P is for Peloton”.
- IHG-BMW M Sport race team, which saw him being taken to the famous Sebring 12 Hour Race in Florida to capture the drama and glory of motor racing.
His most recent project has been for Ferrari. 2017 being the 70th anniversary of this famous marque, they wanted an illustration that portrayed their entry into the racing world. The Official Ferrari Magazine is published by Condé Nast three times a year.
All of his artworks on his website, www.zeitgeistimages.co.uk, are limited to 50 copies per size, signed, authenticity stamped and numbered by the artist.
Private commissions are welcome. They make extra special gifts and are future classics.
