Romanian Lives – An Exhibition about People Like Us.

Exhibition Openng and Charity Fundraiser – Free Entry

Saturday 7th November, 2 – 6pm

Matt Gartside went to Romania in 1992 to produce a folio of images for the charity Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire, to promote the refurbishment of a prison into a hospital.

This if the first time they have been exhibited as a single body of work for over two decades but are as relevant today as they were 24 years ago, perhaps even more so. The people in these photographs are in a foreign land, not long after the fall of the communist dictator Ceaucescu . Some may think that we have nothing in common with people so far away in geography,time and politics. These pictures of grandparents, parents and children powerfully illustrate that this is not the case.

A proportion of the proceeds will be donated to charity, as well as the proceeds from a raffle. First prize will be one of the images from the exhibition, framed and signed by Matt Gartside. Raffle tickets are just £1 each. Either buy at the event, pop into the studio or pledge a ticket by contacting Aly 07773 583072, Matt 07803 151699, or comment below. Thank you.
