Photo dis­play puts the fo­cus on youth

Accrington Observer - - LOOKING BACK -

THE work of bud­ding young pho­tog­ra­phers has gone on dis­play at Ha­worth Art Gallery.

Pupils from The Hollins school were tasked with tak­ing pic­tures in and around the Ha­worth from a ‘young per­son’s per­spec­tive’.

They also worked with mem­bers of the Ac­cring­ton Cam­era Club to de­velop their skills.

Yvonne Robins, gallery man­ager, said they have been work­ing on the project since Jan­uary and have taken ‘some won­der­fully cre­ative pho­to­graphs in and around the gallery, sta­ble block and gar­dens’.

She said: “They also had the rare op­por­tu­nity to go up onto the roof ter­race to get up close to the Ha­worth’s in­fa­mous grotesques that look out over stun­ning views of the val­ley and hills.”

An ex­hi­bi­tion launched with friends and fam­ily in the Ed­u­ca­tion Room of the art gallery will stay on dis­play un­til the end of April. The project is a joint ven­ture be­tween The Hollins Co­he­sion, the Cre­ativ­ity Ini­tia­tive and the Friends of Ha­worth Ac­cring­ton.

The gallery is open from noon to 4.45pm Tues­day to Fri­day and noon to 4.15pm Satur­day and Sun­day. En­try and park­ing is free.
