3 very different takes on person photography. Great stuff

Fantastic use of surplus office space. Photographs are well presented, printed large. Notes on location and technique are brief but fine

Nice clean layout, logically grouped and arranged through out the floor, to flow the narratives. Surprised at the level of sharpness of the prints

A very inspiring, eye-opening exhibition that I would definitely recommend to others

Tom Waterfield

Our Stories Exeter

27th May 2015 - 31st May 2015

Very nice to see the large photos, well displayed. Enjoyed the snapshots of places and cultures I haven't visited and the photographers' takes on them.

David Dyball

I loved this theme – all the exhibitions were good, but this one told me stories of the people in the photos – it was like entering their lives for a brief moment in time.

Rychard Winslade

Great venue, lots of space and light.

Really well laid out, good variety of subjects, excellent presentation on the large canvases.

A visitor who was walking past

Insightful photography. The handout was very useful to add the background to the stories.

A visitor who discovered the exhibition online

Thought provoking especially the old lady. Insight into other lives and societies. Untitled photos leave the viewer a little lost as to their meaning.

Our Stories Manchester

29th Apr 2015 - 3rd May 2015

I enjoyed this exhibition, it gave me the chance to observe the lifestyles of others, which are completely different to my own. It gave me the chance to reflect on my own life, and to ask myself "What is my story?". Wonderfully insightful. The set up is terrific. I particularly like the 'Latin American Everyday Life' with it's use of colours and dynamic depictions of ordinary humans.

Nathan Carter-Dale

Useful photo tips plus some excellent images. Interesting venue.

Visitor from Manchester

Interesting to see an exhibition with groups of photos on a theme by the same author, rather than lots of individual photos. Enjoyed it a lot. This is the 3rd TPA exhibition I've been to now, and they've all been good.

Kate Shaw

Guatemalan photographs very strong – good photo story-telling. Russian photos – the black and white treatment really worked – a bleakness about it. South African pics well-captured – would have liked more info on individual shots.

Brenda Hempton

I enjoyed the whole exhibition. The Russian Steppe photos were very atmospheric and worked well as a set.

M McLeod

Another excellent and thought-provoking exhibition chronicling the tales of different people from diverse countries. These stories cover a wide range of events from ordinary everyday life to the traditions of a South African funeral ceremony.
