By Margaret Sheard…

We are delighted to tell our readers that Richard Chamberlain the great Richard Chamberlainphotographer 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 VaroshaCypriots 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.

CameraIf 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.

  1. Just loved your photos. I was also in the Royal Signals from 1956 to 1958 at two camp Famagusta. The photos were a wonderful reminder of my service then. I am in Kyrenia at the moment and found your book in the paragliding shop. Thank you so much for the memories. Keith Strowger.

    • Hello Keith, thank you for your comment which we have passed onto Richard who is living here now and hopefully he will email you to establish a meeting.

      No doubt you will have seen we have many memories of ex-servicemen who served in Cyprus and we are always pleased to receive more memories if you want to share a few with us and our readers.
