Looking back on Margate, 1970 to 1971

6th August - 1st September 2022
Eclectic Art Gallery

Photographic portrayal Margate during 1970/71.

Open 11am - 5pm 

A photographic portrayal of Winter and Summer scenes in and around Margate during 1970/71.

After a lifetime's career in farming, Keris Eyton Williams returns to Margate with this retrospective exhibition of mainly black and white photos, taken when he spent time in the town whilst studying photography in London. His evocative images of people and scenes, the ordinary as well as the iconic, will delight all that love this seaside resort, back then and now.

The exhibition will include framed and mounted prints, cards, and also a self-published book that brings together many of the images and information Keris will be exhibiting, in a loving homage to Margate - a visual trip through the history of Margate at the beginning of the 70’s.
