  • We are so delighted to host award-winning photographer Ellie Davies' first exhibition in Ireland. 'Half Light' continues in our upper galleries until 13 May. Ellie explores our relationship with woodland, forests and landscape by documenting creative interventions in these environments. She also incorporates star scapes captured by the Hubble Telescope. Her stunning work is profound, atmospheric and quite simply, beautiful and out of this world. #elliedavies #elliedaviesphotography #roevalleyarts #causewaycoastandglens #proud #engagement #exhibition #photography #landscape #oftheland #woodlands #forest #trees #treestagram #instaart #contemporaryart #folklore #stories #instagood #inspiration #magic #limavady
