Claire Morgan Photography
Practical Photography magazine Photographer of the Year 2005 Claire Morgan says: “My photographs come from my own fantasies and unconscious life. They come from my feelings at the time and place of taking. I take pictures to record, to understand the reality, and to capture the beauty of the world. To gain greater knowledge about myself and the world around and within me. To search beyond myself. I use it as an alternative means of personal expression and an exploration for personal enlightenment.”

The White Tree Fund

Acoustic Circus
“Acoustic Circus is a voluntary-run, non-profit making organisation which exists to promote and encourage singer/songwriters in the North East by any means we can. Every month, we put on a gig to provide a platform for the best new talent in the region. We allow the songs and musicians to shine by stripping to the bare bones of acoustic instruments. The result is a raw, honest sound for each performer.”

OPR’s mission is to repair photographs damaged by unforeseen circumstances such as house fires and natural disasters at no cost to the people who own them.”
