STILL NOT ROOM TO GRAZE A COW

My second exhibition which this time will be accompanied by a book. Sir John Betjeman famously wrote "Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough".  I have always thought the poem a bit unfair to the town I have been associated with in one form or another for most of my career as a photographer. The exhibition features organisations in Slough that sum up the town in my eyes. It is influenced by one of my favourite photographers David Bailey, who I grew up envying for advertising that cursed Olympus Trip which at that time I was never going to have.

The gallery will be launched in Slough's new library, arts and cultural centre 'The Curve' (opposite the old Library in Windsor Road, Slough) 

which opens 2nd and 3rd September 2016.
