The ‘Like A Tree’ photographic exhibition has opened at Cork Airport and will continue until Sunday 23rd June 2013. All of the photographs were taken by Belgian photographer Luc Teper and curated by Ken Buckley of The Gallery in Kinsale. It is being hosted by Cork Airport as part of its commitment to, and support of, ‘The Gathering’ 2013.
The photographs were taken over a two-year period and highlight the richness and beauty of trees in our everyday environment. The contrasts, natural beauty and use of light are stunning and will certainly leave passengers with a lasting desire to plant a tree in their garden or local park!
The photographer captures a number of tree varieties native to the Brussels region. Brussels is considered a green city, where trees are a key aesthetical part of the urban landscape, just as they are in Cork. Indeed, Cork and Brussels share many similarities including underground canals and rivers harking back to their marshy beginnings.
Commenting on the unique nature of the exhibition, Kevin Cullinane, Marketing Manager, Cork Airport, said: “We are delighted to support this exciting exhibition, particularly in this year of ‘The Gathering’. We are also conscious of the very strong links that exist between Cork and Brussels and this stunning exhibition of Luc Teper’s photographs reinforces the importance of Brussels as a business and leisure destination, located at the very heart of Europe.”
Ken Buckley, The Gallery Kinsale and Curator of the exhibition, said: “This is the first time we have curated a photography exhibition and I couldn’t imagine starting at a higher level. The standard of excellence in these photographs is second to none and I would encourage all photographers, nature lovers and anyone with an interest in beautiful images to visit the exhibition at Cork Airport and enjoy Luc’s work.”
