Photographic Exhibition by John Daniell and Mike Gallagher
An exhibition by Stroud based John and Mike is on show at the Cotswold Canals Trust Visitor Centre, Wallbridge Lock from Monday 9th July until Monday 1st October 2012.
The exhibition has a bias towards the canal but both photographers are keen to show their artistic sides.

Mike and John both exhibit in Mills Cafe and Mike's work can also be seen at 18 Nelson Street.
Asked to comment on the rationale behind his work Mike Gallagher responded…
"I believe that no matter what photographic process you use to produce an image, if the end result stands up to scrutiny and is good enough to hang on your wall at home that's good enough.
"If you own a Picasso you are a bit stuck, but if you own a Gallagher you can have a change every now and then".
