Silent Exchange: the Landscape Photography of Charlie Waite



Silent Exchange is an exhibition of award-winning photography by one of the world’s most celebrated landscape photographers, Charlie Waite. Bringing together his most important landscapes to date as well as new works, Silent Exchange showcases Waite’s personal response to beauty, in an exhibition of over 50 images all printed of Fotospeed Platinum Etching 285 which spans a lifetime at the forefront of landscape photography. Waite’s photographs aim to encourage an emotional response from the viewer based on the silent exchange between viewer and landscape.



Charlie Waite has had a number of highly acclaimed one man shows throughout his career including the Goldstrom Gallery on Broadway, New York in 2001, Hope at the OXO Gallery, London in 2002 and Earthscapes at The Centre for Photographic Art in Carmel, California in 1999.


He has published 28 books on photography and held over 30 solo exhibitions across Europe, the USA, Japan and Australia.


Charlie Waite is the recipient of numerous awards including the prestigious Honorary Fellowship to the British Institute of Professional Photographers as well as Amateur Photography’s Power of Photography Award and is frequently invited all over the world to give lectures on landscape photography. Waite started the annual Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards, which he set up to encourage the British to use their camera to engage more closely with their environments whether urban or rural and in 2013, he also launched Landscape Photographer of the Year in the USA.

Light and Land - Year of the Print

In association with Fotospeed and Outdoor Photographer


The Mall Galleries - London


After months of printing and framing by John Herlinger, (MD of Fotospeed and The Fine Art Print Room) he could finally breathe a sigh of relief. The Mall Galleries are currently a stunning sight to behold with some 450 prints hung between 9am and 3pm on Sunday 23rd March. The likes of Joe Cornish and Charlie Waite have their works on show amongst around 70 Light and Land members.


Charlie has declared it "perhaps the finest photographic exhibition of 2014."


After speaking with several members of the audience last night, they were simply blown away by the quality and expanse of the work. John Herlinger will be at the Mall Galleries on the 24th and 25th March answering questions on printing, framing and different inkjet papers to use.


If you have a passion for photography and can get across to The Mall Galleries we urge you to.

It is open between 24th March - 30th March and it is free to all.
