An exhibition of seascapes taken in and around the water will be featured in a new exhibition.
Worthing’s Simon Punter is exhibiting his photography at the top of the town’s Montague Gallery, Portland Road, September 20-25 between 10am and 4pm.
The photographer loved the beach from a young age and it became even stronger when he took up surfing.
“I have loved the beach since I was a child and have been drawn to the sea ever since,” said Mr. Punter.
“I discovered surfing in my early twenties and as my surfing improved I craved the unique blend of emotions I got from the sport and from living in salt water; the excitement and satisfaction, along with the calm it creates.
“This made me want to swim in the ocean all year round to improve my water confidence. Since moving to Worthing I have loved my stretch of beach and have swum countless times in all conditions.”
Mr. Punter, who works as a commercial photographer, wanted to start a more creative project.
“An increasing desire to shake up my photography and do more creative, personal work led me to do an exhibition last August,” he said.
“I wanted to show the unpredictability, power and serenity of the sea through a series of abstract and more general views at any time of the day or year.
“Hopefully these images, captured over a period of ten months, will convey some of the feelings and emotions I get when I’m in or near the sea.”
