Many people will have met Richard Chamberlain during his frequent visits to North Cyprus over the past few years and it was always his wish to live here permanently, and after the sad loss of his wife a couple of years ago he decided to fulfil his dream and moved to North Cyprus.
Richard still loves photography and has updated his original book of photographs taken in 1954/55 “Cyprus Scenes and Way of Life in 1954” to include more recent ones of the same scenes “Cyprus Scenes and Way of Life in 1954/55 and sixty years later in 2014”.
There have been previous exhibitions of Richard’s original black and white photographs, taken way back in 1954/55 with his little French camera, which he bought for £8 in 1951, and they are excellent quality showing how things used to be in Cyprus 63 years ago.
An exhibition of these photographs has been arranged at the I Belli Restaurant, Girne to be held on Saturday 22nd April from 11am till late and Monday 24th to Saturday 29th April from 3pm till late.
Richard will also have his 2 books available which have recently been re-printed and are excellent accounts of Cyprus past, which he will be pleased to sign for you.
For those people who are interested in the history of Cyprus, this is a must exhibition to attend. There is plenty of parking space at the side of the I Belli Restaurant as well as nearby shopping areas.
