20 Years after leaving the hallowed halls of Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design (now the Arts Institute of Bournemouth ), I tentatively made my way to the college, for the retrospective of 50 years of photography from the students who had passed through BPCAD. I was delighted to have been asked to be part of the exhibition, and honoured to be among the likes of Nick Knight, Wolfgang Tilmans and all my old college friends who were exhibiting. The show is called from here to there and it does honour all of us past graduates, but for me personally it applauds the dedicated career of Geoff Drury ( along with Maestri, Eldridge and Fassnidge ) who inspired and taught us all those years ago, and it was amazing to get everyone together again so many years later ( I'm sure even Chris Fassnidge was looking down on us ).

There is a site to mark the exhibition - check it out here.


I had a fantastic evening at the private view, and it has enthused me greatly to do what i enjoy best - taking pictures.
