Cycling The Middle East And North Africa – A Photography Exhibition in Yerevan

While I realise that a great deal of my readers won’t be in Yerevan this Friday the 12th of March, I feel that it’s important to put the word out about my first ever photography exhibition – or any kind of exhibition, for that matter.

Thanks to the Armenian Centre for Contemporary Experimental Art, forty of my more attractive snaps from 2009, blown up to glorious A3 size, will be adorning the walls of the Nicholas Boghossian gallery for the next three weeks. I’m hoping to raise a few pennies for the charities I support through the sale of these pieces of work. I don’t know if anyone will turn up to the opening, let alone want to buy any of them – I have never been particularly confident that my photos look good to anyone other than myself – but the gallery staff seem to like the prints, so that’s a good start!

If by some bizarre coincidence you’re reading this and you’ll be in Yerevan this Friday, please come along at 5pm to the ACCEA (aka NPAK), near the Vernissage and Republic Square, and check out the pics for free!

(Can’t make it? See the pics as a Flickr slideshow.)

    Hi Tom!

    You probably don’t remember me, but we met briefly on Dec. 6, 2009, as we cycled the streets of Yerevan and made a film to send to Copenhagan for the UN Climate Change Conference (loved the video on Vimeo, by the way 🙂

    In any case, I found out about this exhibit through local media and I will make a point of coming to your opening (so, no worries, at least one person will show up :)))

    Congrats on your first solo exhibit!
    (Yerevan is great for providing opportunities such as this one, isn’t it?)
