Owens by Ellice

I am very active in exhibiting work locally and nationally. It is important for artists to get their work into spaces that are open to a wide demographic. I had a very successful first solo exhibition that ran for 8 months at The Museum of East Anglian Life.

I have exhibited in group shows and I continue to support a local galleries in Suffolk.

I exhibit my photography on a regular basis alongside other artists working with different media and enjoy responding to other artists' work.

Owens was shortlisted in the Royal Photographic Society International Print Exhibition 159 with this image from his extended Edgelands series made on Kodak Portra medium format film. It was one of 5500 entries. 100 images made the final list.


The image was made at 16:30 on 4th March 2016 just as the sun was settling down towards the horizon
