Transitions Exhibition...must see

Thursday 2nd April 12:00 am.

Tony Fisher from Riddings, who has just received the prestigious Bill Pringle award for his images, will be showcasing his work in an exhibition entitled ‘Transitions’.

Tony uses his personal experiences to grapple with a range of topics such as global warming, provision for the elderly and people with disabilities, through his richly coloured and compelling images.

“None of my photographs are digitally manipulated and are a representation of what I see in life. My photographs capture the moment of life, many are quirky and humorous, emotional, abstract, and intense but all have a relevant and significant meaning,” added Tony.

The exhibition is open to the public from 2nd April to 29th April 2015.
