In his work Henry Reichhold sets out with one over-riding object - to capture the essence and spirit of his subject in one picture. To achieve this the artist must explore, capture and pull together all the many elements that make up a picture together - to create one harmonious whole.
As an example of this process the image below 'Whistable Bay' is constructed from around 100 + separate photos. These were carefully selected for their content from the 800+ original images shot on the day. Each selected image is then ‘ extracted' from its background to create one of the many elements that make up the story in the big picture.
The result is an image that is packed with detail and a rich comprehensive narrative of extraordinary depth. Henry’s style of work is unique and has led to a whole series of successful exhibitions at Heathrow Terminal 5, The Royal Albert Hall, Tower Bridge and other prestigious venues. The long list of corporate sponsors that support his work are a testament to the continued originality and evolution of his work.
