The work of Keighley area photographers will be on display



SEVERAL Keighley area photographers are among those whose work is featured in a new exhibition.

Images captured by eight photographers will be on display from Saturday 13 November at the Trapezium Gallery in Bradford.

Among the exhibitors are Philip Bailey and his ten-year-old daughter, Zarah, of Keighley; Simon Sugden, of Riddlesden; Paul Redshaw, of Silsden, and Joyce Simpson, who lives in Cross Roads.

Steve Bishop, Bev Clough and Cath Muldowney round out the lineup – and also from the District of Bradford.

The various themes of the exhibition, called F8, range from urban and natural landscapes to unspoiled transport and ballet dancers.

Ken Woods, for Trapezium Gallery, said: “We have decided to bring together some of the very talented photographers who are linked to the gallery and present their work in progress as a special event in the run up to Christmas.

“From ten to over 60 years old, our photographers set out to record something in the world around them and they bring the themes to our attention with technical skills and artistic vision.

“We hope there will be something for everyone in this exhibit.”

The youngest exhibitor, Zarah, took up photography two years ago.

“I saw how my dad loved just getting up and going out with his camera – and decided I wanted to join him to see what it was like,” she said.

“I had a lot of fun traveling, taking pictures of whatever caught my eye. I like to photograph everything that looks good and things that look interesting.

“Most of the photos I have taken are of trains, landscapes and farm animals in the Yorkshire Dales.

“The photos I display are a selection of my favorites.”

A launch event takes place at the gallery – in Kirkgate, in the city center – on November 12, between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. There will be refreshments and a chance to meet the photographers.

The exhibition runs from November 13 to December 18.

It is open Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
