Renowned auto photographer on show at Bicester Heritage
Amy Shore to stage first-ever solo exhibition at next month’s ‘Drive It Day’ Sunday Scramble; event tickets on sale now
Bicester Heritage has been transformed from a derelict World War Two bomber base to a world-standard Centre of Excellence for historic motoring in just a few short years – and photographer Amy Shore has been on hand virtually from the start to capture the development work and the characters involved. Her images documenting progress will be displayed in her first-ever solo exhibition at the site, set to take place during the ‘Drive It Day’ Sunday Scramble on April 22.
The renowned artist has been Bicester Heritage’s house photographer for four years, having turned her personal love of all things classic automotive into a successful career. She’s shot historic cars and motorcycles for a number of global magazines, and played an official photography role at major events such as the Goodwood Revival and Bicester Heritage’s own Flywheel.
Amy has personally chosen the images to be displayed during the Sunday Scramble, which is expected to attract more than 5000 classic enthusiasts. As well as the photographs of Bicester Heritage, her work will include a broad spectrum of themes from automotive to portraits. All pieces will be available to purchase, with prices ranging from £175-£850.
She said: ‘I’m absolutely delighted to host my first-ever solo exhibition at one of the places where it all started for me – Bicester Heritage. I’m really looking forward to meeting people on the day and discussing my work.’
Dan Geoghegan, Bicester Heritage’s managing director, added: ‘Such is Amy’s style and eye, her work is distinctive and identifiable. Amy’s rare ability to capture the spirit and occasion, rather than just an artefact or object, sets her apart as one of the world’s finest automotive photographers. Bicester Heritage is honoured to welcome Amy’s very first exhibition in the year in which we both celebrate our fifth anniversaries as newcomers to the motoring world.’
The ‘Drive It Day’ Sunday Scramble will take place on April 22, 2018; advance discount tickets are available here.
