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.
Please note that the size, colours and quality of the pictures on
this page have been reduced for web viewing and do not accurately represent the
