I was Delighted to Showcase my Northerners Exhibition at Calumet Photographic Manchester this evening. It was wonderful to meet members of the Public gage-ing their feedback and thoughts about the Work. Forces TV Jessie Philips popped along to the exhibit featuring an Interview with Myself Below.
The event raised money for UNICEF through the Auction of a rare Sir Patrick Stewart Signed Print from the Collection. Northerners will now be moving to London from 24th Nov – 2nd Jan 2015 with an Open Evening on 28th November 2014. If you would like to attend please see Full Details on the Exhibition Main Page.
