Sophie's World - Closing Event

Sophie Aldred with the photograph I named Bid Time Return, as a nod to the novel by Richard Matheson

With the Sophie's World exhibition soon coming to a close, I thought it would be timely to mention that there's to be a special event at Orbital this Saturday 28th September when Sophie will return to sign photographs between 6pm & 7pm, followed by a closing celebration, all of which you can find the details of on our Facebook events page right here. Hope to see you there!

Meanwhile, I thought it was about time to post a few of the photos and the video from the private view that we had at the beginning of the month, which was not only very well attended but also blessed with a visit from a certain Time Lord!

Sophie and I chatting before the show begins. Vince Henderson and Mike Tucker got there early, as did Jason Atomic. I still had the titles to stick on the wall with minutes to go before it all began - yikes!
