Coloratti Keith Cooper is exhibiting a collection of his large architectural images of his home City of Leicester, at the Leicester People’s Photography Gallery in the city. The exhibition opens on May 2nd for one month in what is the largest photographic gallery in the Midlands. Although the locations may be familiar, the images aim to present them in new and striking ways, in particular one single 14 metre long photograph of the city centre, the largest photograph of Leicester ever produced. The exhibition promotes the City of Leicester in new and interesting ways both to visitors and residents alike.
My first visit to England was in 2009. I flew into Heathrow and took a bus up to Leicester to visit friends who lived there. I arrived at the bus station and was met there by my dear friend Lon Coley. I spent my first few jet lagged hours in England in Leicester. It will always be a special city to me personally. Keith’s unique views of this interesting English city are sure to delight and amaze.
As a professional commercial and architectural photographer, Keith Cooper combines his considerable technical expertise as well as his artistic skills, in creating this series of photographs that focus on Leicester locations. The single 14 meter panoramic photograph of Leicester City Centre at dusk pushes the boundaries of what is technically possible in a single print and is the largest and most detailed photograph of Leicester ever produced. The image file alone spans 5 DVDs worth of storage space. Many of the prints are only possible through recent advances in camera and printing equipment.
“There is just so much of our city that people don’t see” commented Cooper, when asked what inspired the collection.
“I want people who live here to appreciate a bit more of our city’s heritage” he adds, noting “it’s where I’ve chosen to live – it’s my home”
