Last night STYLEetc attended the preview of Paul Wolfgang Webster’s ‘Made In The North’ exhibition. Featuring 100 photographic portraits of famous Northerners, mainly in their place of work, the exhibition is an archive of influential personalities who have helped shape the north of our country.
Using a Hassleblad camera with black and white film, Paul aims to capture images that intrigue and draw in the viewer, leaving them wanting to find out more about the stories behind his subjects. With portraits of Professor Brian Cox, the late television personality Fred Dibnah, architect Ian Simpson and entrepreneur Debbie Moore hung in the National Portrait Gallery, Paul is gaining acclaim for his fine art techniques and documentary style images.
All the images in the exhibition are available to buy at £300 for a signed, stamped, framed, limited edition print. £50 from each purchase will be donated to the Genesis Breast Cancer Appeal.
Paul has his own Gallery in Cheadle Hulme and a Portrait Gallery at Petrillo Studio, Didsbury. For further information visit Paul’s website : www.wolfgangwebstergallery.co.uk
