Well it's been a while since we blogged but a wonderful time for Winters!
We are very fortunate to be based in Derby, home of the international biennial FORMAT photography festival. Over last 12 months we have been working with Greg Hobson (Curator of Photographs at the National Media Museum), Debbie Cooper (artist and curator), Jane Middleton-Smith (archivist), and Jonathan Wallis (Head of Museums at Derby Museums), and a handful of dedicated volunteers to bring together a fabulous exhibition as part of FORMAT17.


On display at Derby Museums from 25 February to 23 April 2017, the show has been curated under this years FORMAT theme of 'Habitat' and is titled 'People, Places & Things'.

We are delighted to say that after many weeks of long, hard days the exhibition is everything we had hoped and more. The images are superb - spanning 165 years of Winters originals from the first studio on the opposite side of Midland Road, and covering the 150 years at the purpose built studios at 45 Midland Road.

The opening night was a real celebration of Winters and everyone who had worked so hard.

We are receiving great feedback and some very welcome national coverage for the heritage trust and will update you on some of the articles that have been appearing! Remember to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date :-)
