Sports Portrait Exhibition

The Cricketer

Sports Portrait

This image was selected as part of the Sport Portrait Exhibition that was held at the Shipley Art Gallery in Gateshead. The main photography exhibition was dedicated to Olympians both past and present, along side the main exhibition was a smaller exhibition depicting local sportsman.

Chris Japes is a local Sportsman with over twenty years of experience with his team Wylam Cricket Club, after joining as a junior. A big thank you to Chris who posed in the feezing cold while we waited for the colour of the sky to change and for the clouds to eventually move into the shot..... the image certainly does not depict how cold it was!
