Bill Rowley lives and photographs in Northampton. He has been in love with photography since receiving a Minolta SRT-SCII as a Christmas gift in the early 80s. Shooting mostly Kodachrome, he enjoyed a little commercial success at that time through a long-defunct Northampton gallery and various private print sales. The requirements of making a living then began to demand the energy and time that might have gone to photography, and for nearly a quarter century the camera stayed in the bag except for an occasional vacation. When Bill finally emerged from the workforce, the world had gone digital, so now his shooting is done with a Canon EOS 50D. He does all of his own printing with an Epson Pro Stylus 3800 using Epson Ultrachrome inks and Epson Velvet fine Art paper, and he mats and frames his own work.
The images in this exhibit are from Bill's "Cut Flowers" portfolio, in which he tackles the challenge of trying to find something new to say about the beauty of flowers.
