The first couple of months in 2016 have passed in a flurry of activities, the highlight of which was a successful two-day exhibition at the new Gateway of St. Andrew’s Church in Walton-on-Thames last weekend.

I exhibited a selection of my landscape photographs, both from Elmbridge and other areas of the UK, such as the one below, taken in Northumberland.

Also on show were some fine stone carvings made by artists of Zimbabwean art cooperative Artpeace as well as some rare first generation pieces made in the 1950s/60s from a private collection that have never been shown in public before.

The response of the congregation and the wider public to the combined show was amazing; many framed prints, books and sculptures are now on their way to a new home.

I now quite enjoy making short videos of events – here is the one from last weekend:

Time now to turn my attention back to my London project as well as finalising my lecture for Kingston Camera Club, to be held on 18 April 2016. I’ll be talking about my journey in photography and how I went about publishing my book “The Elmbridge Hundred – A Visual Journey”. If you live nearby, why not come along and say hello?
