The world for us all feels very different today than it was just a couple of months ago. The situation with the coronavirus has changed so much of what we take for granted very quickly. We feel worried about the most vulnerable in our families and communities. We worry about the implications financially. Perhaps most of all, it is the feeling of simply not knowing what is going to happen, which is causing all of us to feel increasingly anxious. Not knowing what will happen next week or next month is very difficult for all of us who are so used to feeling we know where we are in life, to feeling in control. Even though so much of what is happening is new it also reveals what has always been there, that we do not know what tomorrow will bring. But perhaps it can also help us to see what is most valuable in life, our care and support for eachother and the precious nature of life itself. The Christian faith does not imagine a God who will protect us from the reality of life, but one who reveals himself in Christ as found in the unpredictable and often tragic nature of life. What we do believe and trust is that nothing can separate us from the love of God shown to us in Jesus Christ. A love which is stronger than death and indeed the fear of it. March 2020

A Play on Light Kieran Slyne  PHOTOGRAPHS Tuesday 20th – Saturday 24th October 10am – 5pm FREE ADMISSION
Light is life Light is colour Light reveals... The moment where sunshine illuminates a face or creates a glorious and fleeting pattern in nature, the magical twilight hours where artificial and natural light come together, the riotous neon of the city at night or the frosty magnificence of the Milky Way, these are the inspiration behind this exhibition. A Play on Light is a distillation of Kieran’s life’s work hitherto - a rich collection of people and places from round the world that encapsulates his relationship with life, colour and light. Always the light... Kieran Slyne As a 13 year old growing up in the Irish city of Cork, Kieran « just knew » he had to take photographs - he mowed lawns, did paper rounds and washed cars to find the money for his first camera, an East German Praktica LB. Money that wasn’t spent on film and developing went on buying photography magazines as he gained inspiration from the greats of the 1970s, while his remaining spare time was spent at the Everyman Playhouse and the Cork Opera House doing sound and lighting as well as taking pictures for use in posters. The big move to Dublin came when, at 19, Kieran was selected out of hundreds of applicants for a job in RTÉ, the Irish national broadcaster. Working for many years as a lighting cameraman, mainly for documentaries, Kieran has travelled the world always seizing the moment to take stills. His work has been widely published in newspapers and magazines as well as being used for album covers. To see more of Kieran’s work please visit his website www.cameraworkinprogress.com A Play On Light is brought to you as part of the Bloomsbury Festival 2020 https://bloomsburyfestival.org.uk
