A Beaulieu Camera Group photographer who uses special techniques to give her pictures a unique character will be holding a special exhibition at the New Forest Heritage Centre. Opening tomorrow (Saturday 12th January) the show will display the talents of Cathryn Baldock who manipulates her work to produce more "abstract images".

She is particularly interested in landscapes and what she describes as the "magical qualities" of the New Forest.

She said "a photograph represents a moment in time. By using a range of techniques, I seek to expand on that moment by stretching the amount of time captured and showing different viewpoints together. Not so much trying to freeze a moment in time, rather seeking to capture the spirit of the place."

Living on the edge of the New Forest, Cathryn says she has a wealth of inspiration on her doorstep in the form of ponds, trees, wildlife and ponies.

Her talent has led to a number of her images being commended in Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017 and 2018, and winning the Abstract category winner while also being a finalist in the International Garden Photographer of the year 2018.

Her exhibition opens at the centre in Lyndhurst (NEW FOREST HERITAGE CENTRE LYNDHURST SO43 7NY) and continues until Sunday 10th March. Visitors will be able to buy prints.
