Photography Exhibition in
Change of Venue for event
By Margaret Sheard…
We are delighted to tell our readers that Richard Chamberlain the great photographer will shortly return to the TRNC and will be holding an exhibition of his photographs at the
Bugda Mosque (St Peter and Paul Church) in the Old City of Raif Denktas Culture and Congress Centre in Famagusta from the 5th to 8th September from 10.00am to 5.00pm
The Mayor of Famagusta – Ismail Arter, .has agreed to open the Photo exhibition of 1954 photos of Cyprus, many of which were taken in Famagusta (Varosha/Maras) and the surrounding area, so hopefully Cypriots and others will be interested to see how things used to be 60 years ago!
Richard’s first book – Cyprus Scenes and Way of Life in 1954, and his new 2015 Calendar with wonderful photos of yesterday and today will be on sale and hopefully his new book of photographs “Cyprus, Yesterday and Today” will also be available.
If you have not already seen Richard’s photographs taken 60 years ago with his little £8 French manufactured camera which he had bought in 1951, you will be amazed at the quality and of course the scenes he has captured are a wonderful memory of the past in Cyprus, some aspects now long gone but available to be remembered through photography. It is a wonderful exhibition and should not be missed.
