THE work of Tynedale’s local photographers will be on display in the centre of Hexham this week.

The exhibition, held by Hexham and District Photographic Society, will reflect the diverse range of interests and style of the group’s members with more than 60 varied prints and digital images of their work on display.

The society was first established in 1946 by Donald Low, although local photography groups in Hexham have been established as far back as the early 1890s.

Today is has more than 60 members, who meet regularly between September and April at the Torch Centre in Hexham to engage in talks, competitions and photographic assignments.

This year, work by photographers such as Danny Brannigan, Lesley Middleton, Sheila Stranger and Dave Strother will be featured.

Society vice-president Gerry Stephens said: “The event has attracted thousands of visitors in the past, so it would be great to see the same turn out again this year.

“The group is open to both beginners and seasoned professionals, and we’re always looking for new talent.”

The exhibition is held at North Transept of Hexham Abbey, between 10am and 4.30pm, except during Abbey Services.
