Barbara branches back into photos with flower show

Barbara Manzi-Fe, the Stroud based photographic artist, has an exhibition of her magnified flowers and landscape opening at the Stroud Subsciption Room this weekend.

Manzi-Fe studied photography in London but gave it up to become a psychotherapist. She was persuaded to return to photography, by fellow artist Jamie Vans, for the Stroud Visual Arts Festival’s Open Studios.

Since then, she has gone from strength to strength and is currently concentrating on luxuriant many-times magnified flower photography - reminiscent of Georgia O’Keefe - and Gloucestershire landscapes.

The exhibition opens at the Subscription Rooms’ George Room Gallery on Friday, September 27th,and runs until October11th. It is open daily. except Sunday, from10am to 5pm and entry is free.
