Neil Roland - Gallery 49

I have a large and ever growing collection of Tameside pictures, of which this is a taster. The first four art works comprise a mix of different Tameside images created for a commission.

Having created large collections of Denton, whilst working on a commission for Denton Community College (and which now hang there), and of Droylsden, which hang in the Droylsden Academy - I have also built up a sizeable collection of other areas of Tameside including a wonderful experience photographing in ruined mills around Stalybridge. All my collections can be seen at my Didsbury studio.
