Herbert Walters – A Vision of Movement

30 October – 1 December

Vision of Moments is the seventh exhibition by artist and documentary photographer Herbert Walters that brings together a body of work spanning the past 21 years; locations include New York, Scotland and England. This exhibition also introduces a body of new work recently produced in London and Birmingham. Through his lens Walter sees the profound and the obscure, whilst at the same time he is drawn to civil protests and sites of memorial for the missing and documenting the plight of homelessness in our cities. Working between monochrome and colour, acetate and digital, the street and studio, Walters captures the essence of the everyday, the mundane and the abstract.

I take pictures because I want to show the world about life and the things that you may not see, things that we take for granted. I capture people in a moment of their lives.”
