i was recently lucky enough to attend the opening of a superb exhibition of photography entitled 'over the hill'.

the exhibition constitutes a visual and conceptual photographic 'journey' featuring tim andrews.

tim was a practising lawyer when diagnosed with parkinsons disease in 2005.

less than a year passed before tim could no longer practice law due to his ongoing illness.

the photographic journey began after tim answered an ad calling for subjects willing to pose nude for a series of work involving 'real' people and not models.

subsequent to that shoot, various photographers, from professional to amateur, have made work featuring tim.

the 55 photographs that make up the exhibition are as varied and eclectic as the photographers themselves.

the work that i am posting here is not necessarily meant to be a visual representation of the exhibition itself, rather, it constitutes incidental and accidental images that reflect my experience of the exhibition opening.

i am personally familiar with julian holtom and solarixx [see links below], two exceptionally gifted photographers whose work is included in the exhibition, and i had the distinct pleasure of attending the opening with jules [my thanks to you sir].

the exhibition is taking place in the wayfarers arcade [southport - north west england].

go if you can, the work is exceptional and the cause is extremely worthy.
