Bridport photographer George Wright will be reflecting on his long and varied career with a talk complementing his exhibition at Bridport Arts Centre.

George's exhibition Another Way of Life is now on in the Allsop Gallery at Bridport Arts Centre until February 15.

The last time George’s work was exhibited in the Allsop gallery was in 2000 and his exhibition ‘A Way of Life’ documented rural life in West Dorset.

Since then he has turned his attention further afield and the photographs in this exhibition are the result of personal journeys that have taken place over the intervening years, many of which were made by motorbike, including several trips to Eastern Europe as well as travelling the length of South America and riding to Iran and back.

George Wright is a freelance photographer whose work has appeared in newspapers and magazines including the Observer, Telegraph and Independent and has taken him all over the world, from Armenia to Zimbabwe and from Djibouti to Irian Jaya. He has exhibited in the Chicago Botanic Gardens, the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

His photographs are in the collections of the National Portrait Gallery, Dorset County Hospital and Dorset County Council. His books include English Topiary Gardens, Vanishing Dorset and Dorset Man with the poet James Crowden.

A live event ‘in conversation with George Wright' is at the arts centre on Thursday, January 23 at 7.30pm in the Marlow Theatre. Speaking to the writer Horatio Morpurgo, George will reflect on his long and varied career. Admission is free.
