India a collection of photographs
8 – 10 April 2010
The exhibition consisits of photos taken by Arthur Gold who was asked to go to Tamil Nadu, India to take photographs for The Maggie Higgins Memorial School this January. It is a charity run school and any proceeds from the sales at this exhibition will go to the funds for this charity.
The school was started about 8 years ago by Marga Welsh in memory of her mother, and originally a handful of children turned up to a makeshift shed. As word spread, more children started to come and as funds were raised a school was built. It is run totally on fundraising and through people sponsoring the children.
Whilst there Arthur took plenty of photos of the pupils but also he had the use of a guide on a motorbike, so he took full advantage and went around the local villages meeting with the families and landworkers where he got a great mix of photographs.
