Posthumous exhibition for Leamington photographer

Leamington Editorial 11th Sep, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

TRIBUTE is being paid to a photographer’s love of dogs and motor sports with a posthumous exhibition in Leamington.

Jane Stevens passed away earlier in the year from a brain tumour but her work, ‘Jane’s World: Pets and Petrolheads’ can be seen at Deasil Art Gallery from September 10 to 29.

The 49-year-old’s first photographic endeavour was a sell-out calendar for her dog-walking friends, called ‘ Walkies at Warwick Gates’.

She found her niche capturing the personalities of her clients’ pets.

Jane also captured the action trackside from the British Touring Car Championships – her love of car racing came from her grandfather Dick Boxall who was a well-known rally driver in the 1960s – and she became friends with drivers, engineers, owners and sponsors through her photographs

Deasil owner Kate Livingston said: “It’s an honour and a delight to showcase some of Jane’s best work in a venue to which she herself was a frequent visitor.

“We look forward to welcoming aficionados of her work as well as new fans.”

Jane’s work can be seen at the Oxford Street gallery from 11am to 5pm, Wednesday to Saturday, and noon to 4pm on Sundays.
