John Blakemore Book Launch and Exhibition (Monday, 19 September 2011)
The opening of John Blakemore’s retrospective show at Hoopers Gallery was on Thursday 15 September 2011. This was also the first opportunity to buy the book. As expected there was a very large crowd; I was pleased to have got there early so that I had a chance to enjoy the pictures. Both the exhibition and the book are superb. I took a few photographs before the crowds arrived and some towards the end of the evening. The first three show John Blakemore, John Camino-James (who is co-editor of the book) and Dewi Lewis (publisher).
