Justin Quinnell

Justin Quinnell came and spoke to us about how he got into photography and how he started taking mostly all of his photos through a pinhole. We all gathered into one of the art rooms so he could project all of his projects and show us all of his pinhole photography which

Exhibitions visited at the start of the year
