Following the launch, the gallery was open to the public where visitors who wished to book-on, were treated to free photography workshops running through-out the week hosted by Olympus pro’s Damian McGillicuddy and R. Cleveland Aaron. With entertainment provided in the form of urban performers such as parkour, bmx riding and football tricks there was plenty of visual indulgence designed to test the speed and performance of the Olympus cameras – which were available on loan to all participants of the workshops – for many, this was a chance to get their hands on the new E-M1 for the first time.
Gabrielle’s series showed a considered insight into the personalities of influential women in Iceland, exploring identity through varied jobs and roles within society. Each image, in beautiful saturated colour told a story of its own. This emotive series was also joined by a set of images from Olympus Ambassadors, including Jay McLaughlin, Damian McGillicuddy, Nicholas Gooden, Adam Thirtle, Jeremy Hunter, Steve Gosling, Mike Bunn, Neil Buchan-Grant, Jonathan Posner, R. Cleaveland Aaron and Candice O’Donnell.
