It has taken local photographer, Alan Stringer, over a year to create a social landmark for Ross-on-Wye in the form of a photographic record of local business and their owners in the town.

His work is to be displayed in Ross-on-Wye library from Saturday 22nd October.

Although winner of numerous National and International medals and awards Alan still describes himself as an ‘enthusiastic amateur’ photographer and despite the lure of the digital age he still prefers to use black and white film and develop and print in his own darkroom.

“We are fully supportive of Alan Stinger and his tireless efforts to persuade local business owners to allow him to photograph them at work.” said Mike Morgan of Mike Morgan Media, the Press Officer for the Association of Ross Traders. “Having already viewed Alan’s work I’m convinced that the complete portfolio is going to be the makings of an iconic milestone in the history of Ross-on-Wye.”

An exhibition of Alan Stringer’s 40 black and white photographic ‘portraits’ of business life in Ross-on-Wye will be on display in the new exhibition area at Ross library from Saturday 22nd October to
Saturday 12th November. Ross library is open Monday to Saturday and is located in Cantilupe Road, Ross-on-Wye, HR9 7AN.  Entry to the library and the exhibition is free.
