The Boyne Valley
Photography Exhibition by Pat Burns
The Abbey Gallery Drogheda from July 27th - August 28th 2012
The exhibition captures in Black and White photographic images the beauty of the landscape of the Boyne Valley
plus the power, sense of mystery and atmosphere that still inhabits the place.
The images were taken over a five year period from 2007. They include a variety
of locations across the Boyne Valley; such as the Standing Stones at Baltray near the mouth of the Boyne,
the Battle of the Boyne site at Oldbridge,
Newgrange, the Hill of Slane, Monasterboice, Mellifont, Dunmoe Castle, Bective
Abbey, Tara, Trim and the Cairns at Loughcrew.
The exhibition is not meant to be an in-depth pictorial record of the Boyne
Valley. Rather it is a personal visual homage to this place of myth, mystery and
beauty. Pat Burns is a self taught
photographer based in Meath with a particular
interest in documentary and landscape photography. Pat works in digital and
converts his images to Black & White as he loves the tones, shades, atmosphere
and mood which Black & White can produce.
