Exposure № 073: High Contrast

e start this week
with photography from award-winning 15 year-old British photographer, Eleanor Leonne Bennett, who tells us a little about some of her black and white photography. We’ll feature more of her photos in the coming weeks.
“Unpublished 2” is of two people falling out of a boat , taken at Tod Brook in Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire. Their sails came down and everything started to go wrong; they were good-humoured though, and thought it was sweet that I captured it.
“Least Said Soonest Better” is an image of my mother when she was seriously ill with pneumonia and pleurisy. She is  recovered and now currently leading a very healthy existence.
“Boat” is a photo taken when I walked to the dentist. My mum doesn’t drive, so we walk most places. We walked along canals and saw many barges like this one. I would love to live on a barge for awhile. I bet it is great fun being able to travel slowly, never missing a beat or photo opportunity.
“Alan with lung cancer – worry of the one in three” is a image of my father’s friend Alan Arnfield, who at the time the image was taken was suffering from lung cancer. He has since recovered.
