Tim Handfield, presenter of two of the Colour Factory’s upcoming seminars, has a stunning upcoming photographic exhibition entitled ‘Ethiopian Time’.

The Colour Factory has been busy printing Tim’s photographic works for this breathtaking exhibition.

The exhibition consists of landscape photographs of the Simien Mountains in the North of Ethiopia.

In Tim’s own words:

“Travelling in Ethiopia gives one the Orlando-like illusion of living through different centuries”.
(Delva Murphy, Ethiopia with a Mule, 1968)

“The extraordinary landscapes of the Simien Mountains evoke feelings of temporal dislocation, of being transported to another time. Is it 2008, or 2001 or 1588?

In these photographs I hope to capture the feeling that I experienced in Ethiopia and most strongly in the Simien Mountains. The beauty of the landscape and the unique quality of the light immediately struck me, but there was also an uncanny sense of recognition, like being in a sublime 19th Century landscape painting.”

You can preview some of the exhibition images here before going to visit the prints in person at:

The exhibition runs from 30 June to 11 July 2009.

Artist prints are just one of the Colour Factory’s many services.
