Photographer Helen Churchill has an intriguing ability to visually capture the rich aromas of salt and seaweed that permeate Britain's beaches. Her evocative images make us long for the nostalgia of times past and excursions of which we may have only dreamed. Despite growing up in inner city London, it is the coastal and rural landscapes of England that have been the focus of her work. The images presented at galleryNOW are from her collection entitled Coast. While often devoid of human form, the narrative tells a story of childhood family holidays, evoking the sounds, smells and sights of the quintessential English seaside, and although these images are an exploration of one's own place in the world, they also act as a template through which we can imagine our own longings.

A lifelong student and practitioner of the art of photography, Churchill began her career when she won a competition at the age of nine with a black and
white print taken on an old box brownie on a school trip to London Zoo. She took her first course in photography in London, graduated with her first degree in 1988, gained her Ph.D. in 1994, and along with shooting countless images over many years, continues to take classes to perfect technique, composition and image enhancement. She has exhibited her work at a number of venues and has completed several private commissions for clients in the UK. This is her first on-line gallery exhibition.
