The Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady has been chosen as the first venue in Ireland to host work by award-winning photographer Ellie Davies.

Based in Southern England, Davies’ stunning photographs of woodlands and forests have been shown internationally and are included in collections across the world.

They’ll go on display here from March 31st until May 13th.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Maura Hickey, said: “We are delighted to be the first organisation here to host this exhibition. The Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre will provide the perfect surrounding for the collection, and I hope that all those with an interest in photography and the natural world will be able to attend.”

Since 2007, Ellie has explored the relationship between landscape and the individual. Using the forest as her studio, the resulting photographs explore our own relationship with the natural environment, particularly the deep, dark forest so associated with human psychology, fairy tales and folklore.

Desima Connolly, Cultural Facilities Development Manager, said: “We are so excited to be exhibiting Ellie’s photography. I have selected works from her The Gloaming, Between the Trees and Stars series, which I think are particularly beautiful and will strike a chord with many of us living in the scenic Causeway Coast area.”

There are also a series of exciting creative learning activities accompanying the exhibition, including Parent and Child Photography. To find out more please contact the team at Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre on 028 777 60650 or visit www.roevalleyarts.com.
