A NEW exhibition featuring the work of a talented photographer has rolled into the Head of Steam – Darlington Railway Museum.

‘A Year in the Making’ is a special display of images taken by Peter Giroux during 2018 in which he has captured many much-loved locations across Darlington and the North-East.

A self-taught photographer, Mr Giroux took up the hobby when he retired from his role as a manager with Royal Mail in a bid to help keep active. He now combines his photography with his interests in North-East history, architecture and the beautiful countryside of County Durham.

He said: “I do photograph Darlington a lot and try to showcase the town by looking at it from unusual viewpoints, which range from church towers to the roof of the town hall.

“Each year I set out with a new project, one of which was a series of photographs which merged old and new images of the town while for another I visited more than 60 of Darlington’s oldest buildings, photographing them inside and out."

The exhibition includes images of Darlington, Durham and Beamish. Elements of it will change from month to month, so visitors are encouraged to use their annual pass to revisit it. The exhibition is open now and runs until Sunday, June 2.
