Review // “A Drop In Time” Exhibition

An exhibition by Bob Riach and Jo Bird at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre.

A Drop in Time is a series of mesmerising photographs detailing the moments surrounding the impact of water droplets with the use of dyes & lighting techniques.

In the images the photographers have captured detail of the micro world around us that moves too fast for our eyes to comprehend, and it’s a joy to behold. To see the minute ballet of physics there in front of you. Otherworldly and alien, the forms captured flip between the grotesque and the beautiful.

If you squint, it could be the chaotic beauty of distant galaxies colliding, or some will see a ballerina caught in violent liquid, others will see a creature rising from the calm murk of a swamp. More often than not you’ll see a smooth mushroom cloud rising from a dark ocean.

The imagination really flows upon viewing. Speaking to the photographers, they revealed the labour of love it cost to produce
the pictures. They worked long into the night, testing different methods in order to perfect the science of the perfect shot. Out of hundreds of photos it took over five sessions. They narrowed it down to fifteen brilliant colourful images.

Bob Riach and Jo Bird’s showcase of bold prints are all available to purchase from the gallery at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre for a limited time only.

The exhibition is open now until the 2nd of November at The 20:21 Visual Art Centre in Church Square, Scunthorpe.
