Thank you to everyone who visited the exhibition, engaged with the images and left such generous written comments. A handful are shown below.

“An absolutely beautiful yet immensely sad exhibition. It is very rare that I am so emotionally affected by ‘art’ but the installation piece (Oriental Hearth) nearly brought me to tears. A very sad subject, but intensely intriguing – take the time to look properly – if you dare! Thank you for sharing this. Beautiful.”

“I loved your carefully chosen display – some images chilling, others moving. Thanks.”

“Amazing, disturbing, moving and thought provoking – thank you.”

“Wow. I haven’t felt so emotional at an exhibition for years – God don’t human beings go through such extraordinary experiences. Such powerful work”

“An extraordinary exhibition and quite the most moving and profound that I have seen over many years. Congratulations.”

“Moving and brilliant. Thank you.”
