What a picture!

Former press photographer Brian Wood presents a selection of his astonishing work photographing news events locally over 50 years. From demolitions of landmark buildings to train crashes and royal visits, Brian’s work captures some of the most significant events in the borough during the 1970s 1980s and 1990s.

Brian himself dedicates this exhibition:

“To all the provincial Press Photographers who were  often overlooked but who brilliantly recorded so many everyday dramas and events.”

Brian will be available to chat to visitors about his work on Saturday, 5 February between 10.30am to 12.30pm.

Councillor Sue Markham Portfolio Holder for Public Services said:

‘The opportunity to exhibit Brian’s work is a real treat. This retrospective exhibition clearly shows that serious eye for both drama and detail. It is wonderful that he has such a significant connection with Nuneaton’s past.’
