Llewellyn’s Gallery in Tenby is a dedicated photographic gallery showcasing the work of renowned fine art photographer Gary Llewellyn. The Gallery is run by Gary himself with a little help from his father Ken, who both can offer a fascinating insight into his photographic world. The spacious 950sq ft Gallery has a large display of framed and unframed mounted Limited Edition prints, an exclusive selection of greetings cards, and the very latest of Gary’s work.
Born in Pembrokeshire, West Wales in 1978, photography has been a passion of Gary's from an early age. He has had a camera in his hand as long as he can remember, encouraged by his father Ken, a keen amateur photographer for nearly 40 years.
Gary's images are representations of his love of perfection, which transports viewers into a dynamic, richly saturated and astonishing new world. His affinity with light and ability to transform mundane, confusing and complex features into orderly uniquely styled compositions is the secret to creating these ethereal images.
Imagination is often the starting point where new compositions are envisaged and subsequently translated into reality through the medium of photography. Gary's work breaks the traditional rules of photography and shatters many preconceived convictions surrounding the artistic merit of the medium.
Gary often harnesses the last glimmers of twilight within extremely long shutter exposures, and can frequently to be found at dawn or dusk out on location at remote and inaccessible rocky foreshores, beaches or outcrops, perched precariously, in the search for "perfect light and composition".
Unbelievably, Gary has no formal training in photography; at University he previously studied "Mineral Surveying, Geography, History" and finally obtained a Masters Degree in Environmental Education. Part of his work for his Masters involved monitoring and photographing butterflies on the Castlemartin Army Training Range, a project which resulted in a feature-length article in the Ministry of Defence's annual Conservation magazine, 'Sanctuary 2004' Today Gary's work continues to evolve and his portfolio is rapidly growing.
