Roger Mayne exhibition - a street photographer's family album...

Grandpa’s eye – exhibition at Lyme Regis

Noted British street photographer, Roger Mayne, has an exhibition of photographs of his grandchildren and family, landscapes, and urban details at the Town Mill gallery in Lyme Regis until 29th April 2007.

Roger is best known for his pictures of 50s London, in particular the children's street culture of Southam Street in Notting Dale (now Notting Hill). The Southam Street collection is held by the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Mayne's Southam Street work reached a new audience in the 1990s when singer Morrissey used several of the photos for concert backdrops and record sleeves.

Tuesdays to Sundays, 11 am –4 pm, last day: Sunday 29th April 2007.
