The Photographers Lounge is pleased to present the latest exhibition of limited edition photographs by acclaimed photographer Richard Heeps.

This widely-anticipated exhibition follows Richard’s highly-successful solo exhibition at the gallery last Summer and showcases a number of new works, as well as his stunning new 30″ x 40″ format prints.

All Richard’s images are C-type hand-printed from negative and are available for purchase as signed limited editions (framed or mounted), along with a selection of books and postcards.

The exhibition runs from Saturday July 25 until Sunday September 20.

Richard Heeps’ photography is both art and documentary, and his seductive, highly-saturated colours and sophisticated pictorial structures demonstrate a true love and empathy for his subject matter. Be it cool, descriptive interiors, still life, character studies or landscape, his distinctive style pushes the limits of lens-based photography without the need for digital manipulation. Hand-printed by the artist to heighten the colour saturation, Richard’s c-type photographs are all printed from negative in ‘full frame’ which gives the distinctive ragged-edge look.

Richard has been exhibiting his work for 20 years, including shows at The Photographers’ Gallery in London and Les Rencontres d’Arles. Recently profiled in ‘The Independent’ and ‘British Journal of Photography’, he has constantly published his work as part of an extension of his artistic boundaries, and three – ‘A Different Light: Images of Thurrock’, ‘Man’s Ruin’ and ‘Rolled Out’ – are available at this exhibition.

This latest exhibition at the Photographers Lounge showcases not just a range of new images, but also brings to public display his impressive new 30″ x 40″ prints: genuinely best appreciated at first-hand. An extensive range of framed or mounted prints are available are various sizes, each individually signed, numbered and certificated.
