Portraits from the North East - Musicians

09 November 2018 - 22 December 2018

Back in 2013, a group of Durham-based photographers formed a collective to celebrate the achievements of the region.  They came up with the original title of Portraits from the North East.  This collective has gone on to produce an annual touring exhibition.  Each exhibition featured a particular aspect of life in the North East.  Last year we focussed upon craftspeople.  This year it is the musicians who live and work in the North East.
