Newton Aycliffe exhibition showcases This and That
AN artist is celebrating the launch of his photography book by staging an exhibition of his favourite pieces.
Photographs and illustrations by James D Robinson, of Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, are on display in the town's Greenfield Gallery, at Greenfield Community and Arts Centre, until Wednesday, September 26.
Mr Robinson's work spans a wide subject matter, from monuments and landscapes to historical re-enactments.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to buy a copy of his book, This and That, which contains 83 black and white images.
"It is intended to appeal to anyone who simply enjoys looking at images without being assailed by the often pretentious rhetoric that frequently accompanies many art and photo projects, " said Mr Robinson, who studied traditional photo printing and photo portraiture at Darlington College.
"Ibelieve if a work engages with an audience, then it has attained some value by its own merit."
The gallery is open from 10am to 9pm, Monday to Thursday, and from 10am to 4pm on Friday.
