Join us at the After Nyne Gallery for an exciting new exhibition by Olympus Mentor Gabrielle Motola!

On September 11th 2017, photographer and writer Gabrielle Motola took an unusual travel route from her former home in London to her newly adopted home in Reykjavik, Iceland. Since 2013 she had flown back and forth between the two countries and wanted to experience the transition of the lands in between in real time. Her journey began in East London. The route took her to France, across Europe, to the Faroe Islands on a ferry, then an onward sail to Iceland and Arctic Henge. She then drove via the North coast to her home in Reykjavik.

The stunning photos she took capturing the last of the Autumn light across the vast open landscapes of Europe and Scandinavia can be seen at her upcoming exhibition held at the After Nyne Gallery.

“Many of us make journeys in life. Some for pleasure, others because we have little choice, and some never have the chance because they are not afforded the privilege. No matter the circumstance, travel has the ability and the power to transform us and our lives and we owe it to our collective consciousness to pay that wisdom back.

Gabrielle specialises in portrait and travel photography, usually focusing on long-term projects which examine a social element or issue. She studied psychology, film and photography at the University of Miami and the Spéos Institute in Paris, and has also worked as a professional printer, an editor and colourist in film, and guest lectures in film and photography internationally. Gabrielle spent the past three years living in Iceland where she began working on her first book “An Equal Difference” in 2013, published in 2016. She is a self-confessed motorcycle addict and recently completed a journey from Stonehenge, England to Arctic Henge, Iceland on a 250cc motorcycle.

The exhibition will be available to view at the After Nyne Gallery from Wednesday 12th December to Monday 7th January, between 11am-6pm with the private view taking place on Thursday 13th December from 6-9pm.
