An exhibition showcasing the creative talents of Peterborough’s photographers will be held at The Space4 Gallery, Peterborough Museum, from Saturday 9 February until Saturday 8 March.

It will cover a variety of inspirational subjects and techniques, from peregrine falcons feeding to phenomenal sunrises in Fotheringhay and local carnival dancers.

“This exhibition is an exciting opportunity to showcase the creative talents of Peterborough’s photographers, especially those who have not exhibited before,” said Janice Jones, president of Peterborough Photographic Society. “This year, it comprises of 270 prints and 168 projected images from 29 members.

“Peterborough Photographic Society is a friendly and welcoming society that provides the opportunity for people to get help and advice from more experienced photographers. Members are willing to assist those who wish to learn, by giving instruction in a particular style, technique, or through practical demonstrations of printing and processing.”

Admission is free to the exhibition, which is being hosted at The Space4 Gallery, from Saturday 9 February until Saturday 8 March. Opening times will be Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm, Sundays, 12 noon to 4 pm.

Councillor Matthew Lee, Cabinet member for Community Services at Peterborough City Council, said: “It is a pleasure to be able to host this inspirational exhibition at the Space4 Gallery once again.

“It provides an excellent opportunity for local talent to exhibit their work in the city, as well as giving us a unique perspective on Peterborough, its people and the surrounding area through the work of the society’s members. The group’s longevity is testament to their talent over the years and I hope as many people as possible will take the opportunity to visit the gallery over the coming weeks.”
