Photos blur the lines at Havering Museum

If you want proof there is little truth to the adage ‘the camera never lies’, then come along to a unique photography exhibition in Havering Museum.

Titled Imagination in Havering, former editor of the Recorder’s sister paper, the Barking and Dagenham Post - Barry Kirk - has narrowed the field between photography and fine art with images that need a second look.

Barry said: “I’ve been a photographer for 50 years and I’ve come to see the value of photography to both record and create. I paint as well. So I combined the two; the effect is not something you’d put in an album, but hang on a wall.”

The 30 works will be in the Temporary Exhibition Gallery at the museum, in High Street, Romford, from Wednesday March 23 until Saturday April 9.

The museum is open from Wednesday to Friday 12 to 5pm and Saturday 11am to 5pm and there is a small entrance fee.
