A striking new open air exhibition is being installed in Northallerton – celebrating pop icons from the 1960s.
Award winning Yorkshire filmmaker and photographer, Paul Berriff, has worked with Joe Cornish Galleries to create panels to grace the hoardings of  Treadmills  - the former Northallerton prison.
Supported by Northallerton BID and site owners the Central Northallerton Development Company Limited (CNDCL) the 150 metre long graphic features rare images of artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix as they toured Yorkshire venues at the start of their careers in the early 1960s.
“Inspired by big city developments around the world, we are excited to be using iconic pop culture to enhance the look of the town while the prison site redevelopment takes place” said Joe Cornish Galleries Manager Adam Richardson.
“Featuring over 60 images, this eye-catching display is a unique record of the rise of the burgeoning 60s pop scene here in Yorkshire. To accompany the unveiling, Paul’s ‘Rock Legends’ exhibition will also be on display at our Northallerton gallery.”
And Hambleton District Councillor Peter Wilkinson, Chairman of the CNDCL Board added: “This exhibition will form a striking landmark as we develop the Treadmills site – it features rare images which I am sure will attract lots of interest in the town.”
Julia Chance, of Northallerton BID said:
“Northallerton BID’s mission is to provide a quality appearance and environment in the county town and this joint project is the first of many public art installations we hope to put in throughout the county town.  Indeed we are devoting the month of August to Arts with a number of new public installations culminating in an Arts and Artisan Market on the High St on Sunday Aug 26th.

Páramo & Miquelina - Beyond The Jacket

Páramo Directional Clothing have been supporters of Joe for a number of years and they have just announced that over 80% of their product range is now guaranteed Fair Trade.

For 25 years, they have been working in ethical partnership with the social enterprise Miquelina in Colombia. Miquelina works to empower exploited women and girls affected by Colombia’s civil conflict, in order to help them take their future into their own hands.

Páramo clothing manufactured by Miquelina, accounts for 80% of the product range, and includes all waterproofs, base layers and fleeces, which will now carry the Fair Trade First-Buyer-Label.

“I am delighted to welcome Páramo as the first company of the outdoor sector using the Fair Trade First-Buyer-Label on products supplied by Miquelina, which is a guaranteed Fair Trade producer organization in Colombia”, says Rudi Dalvai, President of the WFTO. “In the garment sector, too often there is flagrant violation of human and labour rights in producer countries, which often face significant challenges in terms of sustainable development. The long-lasting partnership between Miquelina and Páramo is an admirable example which shows that economic development and product quality can go hand in hand with human development and social justice”.

LEE Filters 100mm System Overview with Joe Cornish

Here at the gallery we sometimes get queries relating to Joe's photography equipment and while we do our best to assist, we know we are not as adept as Joe when it comes to succinct explanations on the whys and wherefores.

Therefore we thought it would be good idea to start regularly posting videos of Joe talking both about his photography and the equipment that he uses.

Whether you are specifically interested in filter systems or just curious to gain an insight into Joe's photography then we hope this first video will be of interest.

Joe has been using the LEE Filters 100mm System for over 25 years. In this video by our friends at LEE Filters, Joe shares his experience and gives an overview of all the hardware components and key filters, demonstrating the correct way to set everything up for best results.

Don't forget the Joe Cornish Gallery has a full programme of Photographic Workshops hosted by Joe and his colleague Mark Banks -
