Amber-inspired photo exhibition set for London opening

April 15 sees the opening of an exhibition in London by pioneering Latvian photographer Andris Zēgners.

The show, at the offices of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in the City of London is inspired by amber - the so-called 'Sun Stone' that came into existence 40 million years ago and can still be found on the Baltic Sea coast.

The exhibition investigates and discovery of this unusual material in large-scale photographs that aim to break away from common conceptions of amber with the help of a self-made and highly innovative technical system and 'macrophotography'.

The EBRD exhibition runs until April 30 and takes place under the auspices of Latvia's EU Presidency.

In May the photographs by Andris Zēgners will also be exhibited at Neumünster Abbey, Luxembourg, and the Goldmiths’ Centre, London.
