Russel Davidson and Vyacheslav Mishchenko Nature in detail.

April 28, 2014

I was visiting my folks last week and did a small detour to rediscover Birkenhead Park and take in their visitor centre. Exhibiting there with an amazing photography exhibition was Russel Davidson

You really do need to see Russel’s work first hand to appreciate the detail in his work and his large photographic prints start from around £50… and that’s framed !!

I love the shapes in this one below, the Nuthatch who’s nuts about nuts !

How beautiful to really appreciate the colours and textures in these kingfisher images too. Russel has a great eye.

I must say that my fav series are the Owl’s shot in many destinations and at many different times of the year. Stunning.

Even the colours surrounding this fluffy Barn Owl are wonderful.

Great work Russel, do pop over to his site and pick up a beautiful print, only £15 for an A3 sized ! A real bargain.

Secondly, I also love the detailed, rather fairytale work of Ukrainian photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko who for me, puts the minute kingdom of snails, ants and ladybirds into a whole new perspective.

His work is taken in such beautiful light, that it enhances the natural colours and these snails (not usually one of my favourite creatures) come alive with charm, personality and character in the warm glow. The positions they get themselves into are often quite comical and acrobatic !

What a stunning shot (above) of this snail on his tiny raft with a honey dewed umbrella, all ready to set sail on his adventures… or so I imagine : )

I marvel at the hours spent, getting these amazing shots from nature and the body of high quality work that Vyacheslav Mishchenko continues to release. Beautiful delicate and soothing work. Both peaceful, charming and calming.

    Wow, and not far from me. Will check out if the exhibition is still on, thanks Craig. Sorry didn’t get to the Craft Fair at the weekend, am sure you had a great response.

      Thanks for that, I think the show in Birkenhead has finished but you can see where Russel is next exhibiting on his blog.

      Well done in getting the site looking the part by the way. It’s worth the time and energy isn’t it : )

        I’m sure you would, you achieve so much without even realising it. Keep up the determined approach and the work looks great. More photos soon please : )

    Love the snails- that isn’t a phrase that often passes my lips.
