Please come and join us this Thursday 18th August for the private view from 7-8:30pm. You can meet the artist and have a complimentary glass of wine or juice whilst you peruse the artworks on display.

Here’s what the artist has to say about his work and inspiration…

I originally began taking photographs in my latter years at school.

I went onto study at Wigan College of Technology and for a further 2 years at Plymouth College of Art and Design (this included Film / Video studies). I was lucky to work with Kevin Cummins and Anton Corbin at this time.

I have since worked teaching and as a technician at John Moores University. I have also worked as a ‘volunteer’ in various organisations.

I have been a member of different Photographic Societies and would whole-heartedly recommend joining one as they have been a great resource and socially rewarding. I am currently a member of the ‘Liverpool Chinatown Photographic Society’ (LCPS).

The work exhibited hopefully reflects my varied and wide-ranging photographic interests. I’m often asked “what do I photograph?”. No easy answer but ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ and maybe more than any other mantra, it’s this I have in mind when I ‘behold’ my camera. To quote my Dad’s one and only karaoke effort, “What a Wonderful World”.

I appreciate good design (in all it’s shapes and imaginings).

The ‘Anonymous’ project was a good reason for friends and myself to get together on the busiest day of the gambling year, ‘Grand National’ day.

The photograph to accompanying this ‘write-up’ was taken in 1981. It shows myself and my team-mates aged 15 years when we played in a final played at Anfield (I’m back right). Mr Bill Shankly was guest-of-honour. It is probably the last ever photograph of ‘Shanks’.

Treasure your (photographic) memories.
