Two photographers are holding an exhibition on the theme of ‘Suffolk’ in a bid to encourage tourism in the area.
Cherry Beesley and Pavel Kricka are displaying images showcasing landmarks in the county at Kerseys Solicitors in Ipswich.
Cherry, who as an army officer’s child grew up in several countries abroad, said Suffolk has been one of the most creatively inspirational places she has lived. The mum-of-two, who has lived in Ipswich for the last 15 years, has released 12 images from her Suffolk Collection.
Cherry, said: “I have been a passionate photographer since I was in my teens and was inspired by the beauty of Suffolk to start displaying and selling some of my favourite Suffolk images.”
Pavel Kricka, 61, has been taking photographs since he was 14 and has been influenced by surrealists such as Paul Klee. His family moved from the former Czechoslovakia while under communism during the late 1940s. He was born in Birmingham and moved to Holbrook 35 years ago. He is displaying nine photos on the theme on Suffolk.
Pavel said: “I really love the lifestyle in Suffolk and it’s an intriguing county which makes taking photographs here inspiring.”
Pavel is a keen basketball coach and he combines his two passions photographing games at Ipswich basketball every weekend.”
Kerseys conveyancing executive Edward Thomson, who helped organise the exhibition, said: “It’s great to have such talented artists display their work at Kerseys and highlight the beauty of Suffolk.”
