‘Everyday Delight’ might be something to be enjoyed between the rise and set of the sun, it’s a prompt to look for joy, to appreciate the little things – flowers growing through cracked pavements, cake crumbs on a plate, rippled shadows, low sun through high trees, accidental colour schemes in the street, raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens… hang on!

“It’s all about looking for the joy in the small things, finding the magic in what might at first appear mundane, and discovering the beauty in the everyday. It’s there, but you might not always be able to see it.” Shutter Hub’s Karen Harvey tells us.

In a world where we seem to have more to worry about every day it’s not always easy to find the positive view, but we are hoping that this collaboration with Free Space Project, and the collation of over 100 images, will give viewers something to think about and to focus on temporarily, and perhaps to come away seeing things differently.

Shutter Hub, a photography organisation providing opportunities, support and networking for creative photographers worldwide, has dramatically changed the way photography exhibitions are run, opening up the industry to more people. Instead of selecting a small number of photographers to show printed and framed images at high cost to the exhibitors, they teamed up with Newspaper Club to print the images for the photographers and displayed them taped directly to the walls in non-traditional exhibition spaces to bring photography to the community.
