Launching March 1st at Common and Port Street Beer House, Manchester…
EGGS NO SOLDIERS & other unseen moments / A PINT OF MIXED & other unseen moments captured by the Late Tom Culley.
From March 1st 2012 Teacake will be exhibiting a special collection of photographs taken by the late Tom Culley. Split over two venues, this installation of large-scale images offers a glimpse into the varied past times of one man and his closest companions. Discovered inadvertently, these images taken from a collection of over 5000 meticulously cherished slides portray life through the eyes of an accomplished amateur photographer. Always fascinated by the colourful antics of ordinary people enjoying extraordinary activities this perspective is both personal and insightful.
Only ever before seen as part of a good old-fashioned slide show these are nostalgic, heart-warming and often-humorous portraits of life as it happened. Tom’s passion for photography was simple; his aim was to preserve the funniest, most charming, most special and most poignant moments in order to share them with his loved ones. Now we are lucky enough to be able to share them with you in the form of ‘Eggs no Soldiers’‚ at Common and ’A Pint of Mixed’ at Port Street Beer House.
Opening night – Thursday 1st March 2012 – 6.00pm onwards
Common, Edge Street, Manchester, M4 1HW.
