3rd April - Chrissie Westgate - 'Mixed Blessings'

Chrissie uses her heart, her mind and her eyes to take pictures because photography is not just about seeing: it is also about feeling. This presentation explores Chrissie’s skills and delight in portraiture. 

Chrissie Westgate is an international award-winning photographer with many years’ experience. She enjoys all aspects of the art form of photography. 

She specialises in informal portraiture, and has undertaken many trips abroad, and has been a regular visitor to India. Her stunning portraits have become very collectable, and are held in many private collections around the world. 

Chrissie says: “A photographic image can expose so many emotions and almost always transcends nations. Images are such a capable and powerful way of exposing situations of conflict and misery throughout the world and offer a compelling means of bringing about change; the essence of being a people photographer is gratitude. I am constantly grateful for the opportunity to see and spend time with people and to make images that allow me to share what I have seen with others.” 

Chrissie’s work has been exhibited in The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Royal Albert Hall, The Greenwich Museum, The Menier Gallery and many local galleries.
