Exhibition of photographs by Rik Walton taken in the North East during the 70’s and early 80’s

Artist's Description

Best known for his images of rock stara, Rik has also had access to many legendary figures in the world of jazz.. Commissioned by Newcaste Council to document the Newcastle Jazz Festival, he has photographed the late, great George Melly, Abdullah Ibrahim, Andy Shepperd and Don Weller, to name but a few.

Presenting a radio programme gave him the opportunity to interview and photograph such notables as Pete Seeger and John Martyn. Other images are simply the result of his personal passion for music and making sure he was in the right place at the right time.

Rik is a photographer based in Donegal specialising in music, theatre and event photography. He has also undertaken publishing, architectural, PR, wedding and portrait commissions.
