Harold Riley
Photographic Exhibition

This new exhibition explores the long and diverse photographic career of Salford artist Harold Riley. Riley has experimented widely with photography from the different types of cameras, printing processes and paper he has used, to the many subjects he has covered.

The exhibition includes a brief selection of photographs of Salford in the 1960s, bringing to light the early years of Riley’s photographic career. The works combine an artistic interpretation whilst being a reflection upon the time.

The Gallery is located on the first floor of the Lowry Outlet Mall on Salford Quays and is open friday to sunday from 11 to 5
