Life at the seaside

It took Parisian photographer Laurence de Vogüé three years to prepare her new exhibition in Winchester but she has already sold one of her large scale pictures of the seaside to a prestigious Hampshire hotel.


‘By The Beach’ is her second exhibition at The Minster Gallery in Great Minster Street and can be seen from 7 to 30 June.


In this new exhibition, the artist has focused on the breathtaking beauty of the seaside. The immensity of perpetual oceans contrasts with the fragility and innocence of human figures.


“It took me three years before I was able to obtain what I had in mind. Thankfully, I finally succeeded last summer,” says Laurence. “I love colours and contrasts. I feel that my photographs can capture and give out energy, positivism and enthusiasm for life. This new work is also very poetic.”


Andrew Harrison, General Manager of The Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire, commented: “This spring saw us undergo a major renovation in our Spa. As part of this, we were delighted to feature this creative artwork from Laurence de Vogüé. Her colourful piece perfectly complements our aesthetic and creates a great talking point with both our guests and members.”


‘By The Beach’ is on display from 7 to 30 June. The Minster Gallery is open Monday and Thursday to Saturday.
