Photographer Jonathan Turner came to Stokesley Library in the summer, to lead two workshops which explored ways of depicting Stokesley and Great Ayton, with two groups of amateur photographers. The groups took some stunning portraits of local people, went out and about in the surrounding area, and took photos of Stokesley ‘then and now’. Both groups, one of young mums and the other a bit older, had a wonderful time learning new photographic skills.
The photography workshops culminated in an exhibition of selected photos entitled ‘Through the Lens’, held at Stokesley Library in July 2016. Some of the photos are shown above.
