An exhibition of photographs by Georgina Campbell from the Bayside Art & Heritage Collection. Selected works are from the series Open your mind - tread softly, originally exhibited at the Gallery at Bayside Arts and Cultural Centre in 2015.
Created during a residency in Gamli Skóli (Old School Art House) on the island of Hrísey off the north coast of Iceland. This tiny island of just over seven square kilometres is surrounded by the mountains of Eyjafjörður and with no natural predators on the island it has become a haven for birds. There is a sense in these photographs that Campbell knows where she is going, yet is unaware of, and excited by, what she will find when she gets there.
