I was drawn to the wonderful coastal photographs and bought a few greeting cards (some of which which I intend to frame). There is a raw beauty to the scenes and a lovely memory of my visit to Rye and surrounds. Worth a visit for gifts or just for yourself!

Passed this gallery of work by photographer David Purdie and had to pop inside. The window display had a beautiful canvas image of underneath Hastings Pier - wonderful textures and light in the picture.

I really like David Purdie's work - I have a photo of fishing boats at Hastings over the fireplace. This gallery gives you the chance to view his work and buy anything from a card or jigsaw to a full sized print.

Been here several times and I just love this photographer. Great for unusual greetings cards, small prints and of course his large framed and canvas prints. He also runs workshops which you can sign up for.

Lovely gallery in the centre of Rye displaying beautiful photographs of the area. We have holidayed in Rye Harbour & Winchelsea three times now and love the area so it was a treat to visit this gallery. I took advantage of Mr. Purdie's offer of a choice of 3 cards & frame for £19.95, choosing three seascapes, so I could... More
