Michael Ward photography to be displayed

The catalogue of professional photographer Michael Ward will wow the crowds of Quay Arts on the Isle of Wight at a free exhibition of his works.

Running from September 7th to 21st, the show entitled Michael Ward: Selected Photographs will draw on the artist's extensive portfolio to showcase the often touching and sympathetic use of subject matter he used to draw the viewer into his pieces.

Having passed away in 2011, Ward completed a more than 30-year career as one of the biggest names in the world of photography, originally discovering his talent and passion for the art form when taking pictures of Formula One driving legend Sir Stirling Moss in the early 1960s.

Notable additions to his portfolio include cover work for the Beatles' famous 'A Day In The Life' album, as well as creating many images for the book of the same name.

The exhibition is to be open to all comers and will be held in the Rope Store Gallery. It will be free to enter and showcase iconic images captured by Ward of some of the most famous names of the 20th century, including Rudolf Nureyev, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, Gina Lollobrigida and Ralph Richardson, Laurence Olivier, Glenda Jackson, Helen Mirren and more.

It is an event not to be missed for lovers of contemporary photography and cultural history.

Quay Arts can be found on Sea Street in Newport Harbour and is open daily from 09:30 to 16:00 BST Mondays to Saturdays.

Completely refurbished in 1997, the complex was designed by award-winning architect Tony Fretton and sympathetically restored from a 19th century brewery warehouse.

Featuring three galleries, a 134-seat theatre, numerous shops and cafes, as well as conference facilities, Quay Arts is a hub of cultural activities on the Isle of Wight and well worth a visit for all those keen to expand their intellectual horizons.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801618605-ADNFCR
