The award-winning filmmaker and photographer, Benjamin J Borley, has a new exhibition, The Sea is all about Us, and it’s being displayed at The Grapevine in Exmouth, until Thursday, October 27.
The exhibition is inspired by a line from TS Eliot’s Four Quartets and the people and places of Devon’s beautiful coastline. The Sea is all about Us explores the relationship and interaction of two of photography’s oldest genres, portraiture and landscape.
Borley’s photographs have featured in a variety of studios and collections around the world; Vogue Italia’s online collection, the Photographer’s Gallery, London and the Walker Art Centre, Texas.
If you don’t remember the photographer’s name, then you will surely recognise his ability to beautifully capture life through a lens. Borley directed the short film, Until the Dawn, which was crowned Best Film at Exeter Phoenix’s 2011, Two Short Nights film festival. Until the Dawn’s cinematography was simply mesmerising and his work has even caught the eye of legendary, British film-maker, Ridley Scott, who used some of Borley’s footage in his recent TV/YouTube project, Britain in a Day.

The Sea is all about Us is a must see exhibition from one of Devon’s premier photographers, Mr Benjamin J Borley. For more information, visit The Sea is all about Us Facebook page or why not drop into The Grapevine, have a pint and see the exhibition first-hand.
