I am delighted to announce my new exhibition ‘First Love’ which coincides with Jonathan Harvey’s play ‘Beautiful Thing’ at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. 2 November 2011 – 5 December 2011. Mezzanine Gallery. Free admission.
A contemporary snapshot of Manchester’s LGBT community in the year 2011. Observant, touching and celebratory, the exhibition sets out to capture some of the emotions experienced through FIRST LOVE – excitement, awakening and sometimes even loss.
“Her work speaks for itself -striking, subtle and with depth.” Jackie Crozier. Festival Director, Manchester Pride.
Working on this exhibition has been a wonderful experience for me and I have met so many generous and kind people along the way, from the dedicated staff and volunteers at Manchester Pride to the enthusiastic and inspiring staff at the Royal Exchange, but perhaps most of all, to the very humbling people of Manchester, many of whom I met whilst out and about with my camera. Their energy and warmth kept me going. So, if you’re reading this, thank you all!
