In pictures: private view attendees enjoy Robin Stemp exhibition

20 January 2023 College life

A new exhibition of still life photography by Robin Stemp launched at Clare Hall yesterday, featuring enigmatic still lifes and unpopulated interiors, together with unusual aspects of the built environment from Stemp’s travels. As with all our exhibitions, admission is free and everyone is welcome to explore the show daily from 10am – 5pm, until 2 March 2023.

We hope you enjoy the following photographs from our Private View:

On her work, Stemp comments: ‘Because I want large, almost empty rooms to photograph and we live in a small house, I create my own, and these have to be in miniature. I aim to evoke an atmosphere – sometimes one of silence, peace, or something about to happen.
