When visiting the Opus Gallery In Newcastle to view April Jarocka’s work for real, I was also impressed with the inside of the building. It was built in 1886 and the internal decor is almost unspoiled from the original. It is just the odd fire alarm cable can be seen that is modern. So I asked if I could take some photographs of the architecture and permission did not seem to be a problem.
However, after taking a couple of photographs I was informed by the building manager that photography inside the building was not permitted and I was ejected, politely but ejected nonetheless, from the building. It’s a hard life being a photographer! However, I will attempt to gain permission from the building manager in due course.
This is a photograph of the stair case just in from the main entrance, It’s a teaser of the building’s inner treasures.
This photograph was taken before being ejected from the building.
The lighting was a mixture of daylight, tungsten light, and energy saving fluorescent lights – nightmare scenario. Colour balance achieved using custom colour balance and my trusty envelope!
