Photography Exhibition

Karen Rivron's photographs are now being exhibited for sale at Golden Brown Coffee in Darlington. The four currently on show reflect her interest in capturing the unusual in the everyday. There's also an element of North East-interest in the form of St Mary's Lighthouse which can be found further up the coast, East of Newcastle. Below are the four photographs you can see in the gallery (picture, left) plus a few others Karen also has for sale as framed prints (£35 each plus p&p):

The coffee shop hasn't been open long and is, in my opinion, a real breath of fresh (well, coffee-scented) air for Darlington. As well as the coffee shop downstairs, there is an art gallery upstairs. Once visited, it can become something of a habit.

I particularly love the falls in the winter and the bathing huts - I haven't seen either of those before. I look forward to going with you to that coffee shop in the near future!

Great photos! My favourite ones were the first one, the second one and the last one. Especially the last one. I could definitely see that hanging somewhere in my house. :-)

Greetings from London.

Does Karen have a website from which these and other photos can be ordered? That might provide another avenue for sales. These are beautiful and that coffee shop/gallery sounds charming.

Lovely photographs - and such an unusual viewpoint (an intriguing, kind of layered approach). Fascinating.

Wonderful work! The one of the wooden door immediately took me back to a little Catholic book I had as a child. The illustrations were photographs of torn-paper art and that particular door was ominous as it represented Herod's order to kill all the newborn sons. (Not the nicest image for kiddies.)

I actually popped over thinking there might be something here on "The Stranglers".

Thanks for these comments, everyone.

To answer a query, sorry but no, Karen unfortunately doesn't yet have a site you can buy these from but she's in the process of setting up a Folksy.com shop. You can see more of her pictures (not just the ones she sells) on flickr. The only obvious website you can buy them from for now is this one.

Karen's flickr photostream is here.

Karen's caught many of the unique elements+flavours of the wonderful North East.

there is a great similar art gallery coffee shop combo in Rochester called the Deaf Cat if you are ever in that area... totally recommended - Sadly I get there far to infrequently
