Art exhibition at burton library now under way

TWO photographers are exhibiting their unique work at Burton Library in the run up to Christmas.

Robert Brittle and Peter Jordan-Turner will have their work on display until December 23 at the site off High Street.

The images on display include some from the ‘Jubilee to Jubilee’ series of expertly reshot and merged new-and-old photos, with visitors able to see for themselves the transition from Victorian brewery hub to modern Midlands town.

With the loss of so many heritage buildings, some of the scenes will evoke memories of times past for old Burtonians.

Mr Brittle said: “We had such a fantastic response from Burton Mail readers last year when we produced our book to go with the series.

“We have developed some additional unseen images on the same theme and were also keen to show some of our other photographic work, as there has been so much interest in how we capture our images both locally and further afield.”

They are joined for this exhibition by artist Alistair Kennedy, the man behind last year’s successful PINT Contemporary Arts Festival.
