I was recently invited to curate a new photography exhibition for the Liverpool International Photography Festival 
My brief, to select images from the AOP Photography Awards and re-present them in response to the festival's theme
WOMEN MIGRATION + MEMORY.  This turned into a most exciting and enjoyable venture, choosing and showing great photography
from award-winning photographers.  Here are a few of my favourites..

The exhibition opened at historic St.George's Hall and the preview was attended by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and I had
the honor of being her guide.  She was extremely impressed with the work on show, in particular George Logan's series
'wildlife on the edge of extinction' photographed for the Born Free Foundation, and Anthony Lycett's emotive portraits
of a woman with Alzheimer's, one of the Lord Mayor's charities.  She was also very moved by Clare Park's brave and worthy
portrait 'my mother towards the end of her life' and together with Emma Smith (the festival's executive director) we three
agreed this picture was worthy of 'best in show'.

The festival runs until 31st May 2015
