Seychelles photographer Peter Allisop holds journey of discovery of nature’s wonderful facets exhibition

Seychelles photographer Peter Allisop holds journey of discovery of nature’s wonderful facets exhibition ( “Photo Lyrique,” an exhibition consisting of thirty-one photos taken over the past year, took Seychelles on a journey of discovery of nature’s wonderful facets.
Photographer Peter Allisop took a close-up look through his camera lens at, “The Clock Tower after Sunset,” “Dancing Chameleon,” “Gecko’s eyes,” “Moonrise over Ste. Anne Island,” “Pathway to my Soul,” and “Old Cart Wheel” among many others.

A Detective Constable from the Seychelles Police by profession, Peter says he discovered photography two years ago while he was on a nature walk and since he has always been fascinated by nature’s beauty, photographing what he admires is easy.

“Each time a scenery appears in front of you,” he stressed, “one must take all the time to cherish that moment, because it will never happen again. I have fallen in love with this form of art, and I practice it mostly as a hobby.”

Peter Allisop has been a member of the Seychelles Photographer’s Association, “Mizopwen” since April 2012, and he is also registered with the National Arts Council of Seychelles.

Specializing more in macro photography, he has participated in two previous group exhibitions which were the “Launching of Mizopwen” on May 14, 2012 and “KLENDEY” during the Seychelles Arts Festival on August 30, 2012. “Photo Lyrique” is his first solo exhibition.

Assisted by the Seychelles National Arts Council, his work is being exhibited at the Carrefour des Arts Gallery up to December 31, 2012. Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, said on this latest display of works of arts that it is important for the Department of Culture to be seen to be standing behind Seychelles artists, from whichever their art form they are gifted with. “We not only need to say we are here for our artists, but we need to be seen to be standing with our artists as they come forward to face their public,” Minister St.Ange said.
