April exhibitions in the library

April exhibitions in Droitwich library are all about the photography. Julian Rouse and Ric Harding , both members of Droitwich Camera Club, show the whole beauty and diversity of photography. 

Julian Rouse enjoys doing portraits and photographing people on the streets and in different situations. His documentary approach to the subject is accompanied by a narrative and subtle sense of humour. His black and white photograph of two young men was on display from 1st until 14th April.

Ric Harding is primarily interested in landscapes, wildlife and travel photography. His photographs have been published in Outdoor Photography magazine and exhibited in many International Salons around the world. He chose a poetic photograph ‘Driftwood on Luskentyre Beach’ for the library display and it can be seen until 29th April.

Spanish sun in Park’s Café

DAN chairman Peter Hawkins has an exhibition in Parks Café during April. Take a look at parts of Spain whilst enjoying your coffee in Droitwich! My pictures in Park’s Café will take you to Mallorca, Madrid, Toledo and other parts of mainland Spain. You can see Spain from here.

So, where will you find the following?
