Runcorn resident Roy Gough acquired his first camera in 1947, aged eleven and highlights of his wealth of more than 70 years of work will be on show at The Brindley.
This life through a lens, is at Halton Borough Council’s award winning venue from Friday 30 August to Friday 29 November, as part of a commitment to support local culture. And it is FREE to view.
As his passion for photography grew, Roy set up his own dark room to develop films and print pictures.
Since then he’s taken thousands of photographs, capturing images of Runcorn and beyond. This exhibition reflects his particular interest in railways, buses, canals and street photography.
Roy has always enjoyed photographing people, at work and going about their everyday lives.
Over the last seventy years, his photographs have reflected the changes in thetown and society as a whole.
His photographs feature in many books on local history and he is a social historian, as well as a keen amateur photographer.
The Brindley Gallery is open 10 am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
