Award winning photographer Eamonn McCabe exhibits at the Gallery on the Green

The Gallery on the Green's first exhibition of professional art is by the award winning photographer Eamonn McCabe, well known for his work as a sports photographer and picture editor. His natural curiosity about individuals who work alone evolved into a wide ranging series of photographs of writer's rooms that appeared each weekend in The Guardian. Eamonn selected and printed a show especially for us, including gems such as the working spaces of such eminent authors as Edna O'Brien, Rose Tremain, Clive James and our local hero Bill Bryson.
