One Image. A Thousand Words.
Venue: The Station
A collection of images by local amateur photographer Bryn Turner exploring the well-known phrase, 'A picture is worth a thousand words'.

"No picture means the same thing to any two people. Photography isn’t always about getting the perfect shot, it is often about what that image meant to the person who took it. Many of the images within this collection will mean something different to me than they will to you. That’s the aim of this collection - to help you consider just how much meaning can be taken from an image." - Bryn Turner.
