Visit to Isle of Wight photography exhibition recommended

Tourists who will soon be taking Isle of Wight holidays have been advised to check out a photographic exhibition which is being held on the island.

Last Great Event is a showcase of pictures taken by Isle of Wight-based photographer Chris Weston from the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival held on Afton Down.

He was working as an electrician on the site during the event and was one of only a few people who had access to areas the press and general public were not allowed in.

The exhibition will be at Quay Arts in Newport from May 12th 2010 until July 5th 2010 to mark the publication of a book full of Mr Weston's work.

VentnorBlog said: "Chris, whose work is pretty spectacular, continues to photograph festivals to this day and we imagine he must have enough material for at least another book, if not more."

After visiting the exhibition, tourists on Isle of Wight holidays can check out the Riverside Centre, which features a waterfront restaurant, while they are in Newport. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19772660-ADNFCR
