The images expand on travel as it mixes with exploration of light, emotion, past travels and art influences. Elaine Batton’s photography continues her use of a painterly approach, resulting in photography filled with the use of bold colour and contrasts that add depth to the whole composition. Images of beauty, that are timeless and ageless.

The painterly landscapes and portraits are inspired by classic art. The images are shown alongside a selection of representative postcard artworks. The postcards which are such icons/symbols of exploration and travel , provide a glimpse into a visual diary of travel and experiences.
