PHOTOGRAPHS OF CITY BOUND FOR LAW COURTS

SCROLL DOWN FOR PHOTOGRAPHS

 

A series of photographs of Hull commissioned for the refurbished Combined Law Court Centre on Lowgate can currently be seen at the EICH Gallery on George Street.

 

HM Law Services approached Kathie Jenkins, curator of the EICH (European Illustration Collection Hull) Gallery, with a commission for some new photographs of the city.

 

The commission went to Mark Terry, a photographer and senior lecturer in New Media at the Hull School of Art & Design.

 

Mark produced 13 photographs of the city which are now hanging on public display in the EICH Gallery, part of the University of Lincoln, prior to being housed permanently in the law courts.

 

“Philip Golding, a Hull Fine Art graduate who works in the law courts, was very keen to commission original artwork to put in the corridors and approached Kathie, who in turn approached me,” says Mark.

 

“Philip also commissioned a painting by John Bettles, who last year became the University of Lincoln’s oldest ever graduate at 81 and who has been painting Hull scenes all his life.

 

“I've tried to represent the individuality and wide diversity of Hull's buildings and landmarks, with images from its past and present, but at the same time keeping the representations fairly conventional and suitable for long-term display in the law courts.”

 

The photographs are expected to move from the EICH Gallery into the Combined Law Courts Centre some time before Christmas. Until then members of the public can see the photographs in the George Street gallery, which is open from Monday to Saturday between 10am and 4pm. Admission is free.
