Rob Boler Exhibition
01/04/17We've been today to the opening of Rob's joint exhibition with Patrick Byrd at the Jesus Centre in Northampton's Abington Square. First let me say that while it's a splendid venue, the exhibit isn't on a religious theme; what you will see if you get there is a dozen or so cracking shots selected from Rob's steadily-expanding portfolio of pictures from Northampton's historic 'boot & shoe' quarter. Typically for Rob they are 'people' pictures, and fine ones at that. Some focus on the traders and craftsmen of the area, others skilfully explore rather less accessible subjects. I was particularly taken with his shots from charity projects in the district, which have captured at once the toughness of life for those who live on the streets, but also a mood of boisterous good humour which dodges the stereotypes firmly. Well done Rob! Definitely worth a look.
