Showing now


and the story of


an old man and his house
in Slovenia


Herman Cater was visiting the area of Svetina in Slovenia when he came upon a lonely dwelling, a house over 200 years old. He saw an old man and asked if he could photograph him. Stanko Vodisek agreed. This random meeting led to a friendship from which the photographs in this exhibition were born.

Stanko had lived in this house for all his 79 years. He had 11 children there. His wife died young, age 52. Stanko lived alone, doing his own cooking and laundry, chopping fire wood and cutting grass to feed a few sheep.

Stanko died on 16 January 2009, overcome by the winter cold. Herman's photographs record a lifestyle that is disappearing from Sovenian land and the fate of an old man. Herman says, "I shall never forget Stanko's eyes. They reflect the suffering, poverty and loneliness of old people.

We will all grow old one day and perhaps, not unlike Stanko, we shall approach the end alone.

This is a moving and contemplative exhibition. We are privileged to be able to exhibit it at the Photo Space from 6th to 30th September 2017, Wednesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm.

Book now for our newest workshop:


The Location is exceptional - the beautiful gardens, grounds and pools of Stokesay Court, Onibury, Shropshire.

The grand house and its gardens were the setting for the film "Atonement".

With the kind permission of Caroline Magnus, the owner of Stokesay Court, this new series of four workshops is an opportunity for keen photographers to follow a journey of how trees and their landscape change through the seasons.

Delivered by Claire Carter (cARTerART) and Peter Jones (the Photo Space), the workshops are an excellent opportunity for serious photographers to develop or hone a wide range of photography skills: sunrise or sunset hours; low light; landscape; long exposure; use of filters; shooting into the light; reflections on water; close-up and macro; pros and cons of normal, wideangle and telephoto lenses.

The four workshops follow the seasons:
Autumn workshop: Wednesday, 25 October 2017
Winter workshop: Wednesday, 24 January 2018
Spring and Summer workshops dates to be confirmed.

Bookings can be made for individual workshops or for more than one workshop at special, reduced prices.
