ArtLib at Woodbridge Library - Photgraphy by Brian Beaney, FRPS

Brian is renowned for his work based on images captured on the east coast of England. He was awarded a fellowship distinction with the Royal Photographic Society in 2005 for a panel of images of coastal scenes, upon which he worked for over three hundred hours during a period of twelve months. He painted digitally with light, to create mood and atmosphere, and using imagination to epitomise the peace and tranquillity of the scenes. Brian approaches his photography from an artist’s point of view - the photograph being the source of inspiration. The image is altered to improve the composition, with some elements subject to movement or enlargement. Foregrounds can be added or expanded. Retouching and atmosphere are painted in layers. All of this is achieved in Photoshop. Exhibited, and awarded a medal, by the London Salon and as far afield as Australia and the U.S.A, Brian has been featured in several photographic publications and his work was used in Russia by the RPS as an example of quality required for distinctions. Recently he had a retrospective exhibition at Wingfield Barns. Brian also now creates abstract art using a variety of mediums although mainly working with acrylics. His painting ‘ Organic Abstract’ was accepted by Ipswich Art Society and formed part of the exhibition housed in the Ipswich Art Gallery during 2018.
