15th September – 6th October – Hereford College of Arts – Photography

Every year the Photography degree course at Hereford College of Arts visits a different town to create a snapshot portrait of life and sense of place in Herefordshire. 29th April 2021 saw us visit Ross-on-Wye for the 2nd time. Covid 19 restrictions had just been eased allowing us to enter shops and photograph people. The weather was on our side and we all had a lovely day meeting people. We hope to have captured a little bit of the spirit of Ross – a unique and lovely town in Herefordshire.
