‘Over the Hill’: A Photographic Journey

Group show from 01.02 – 27.02.11

This exhibition is in fact a photographic digital installation, instigated by Tim Andrews, who suffers from Parkinson's disease. He had the urge to be seen through the eyes of over 100 photographers since the onset of his illness. The impressive list of top photographers includes Rankin, Harry Borden, Vanessa Winship & Steve Bloom (who's image of Tim became a finalist at the Taylor Wessing prize, National Portrait Gallery).

Astrid’s contribution to this compelling compilation is the image 'Wanted: Tim Andrews', which is exploring Tim's love for acting, cinema visits and his childhood dream of being a cowboy...

The venue: The Lightbox, Chobham Road, Woking, Surrey, GU21 4AA
Opening times: 1. February — 27. February
Tuesday to Saturday: 10.30am - 5.00pm
Sunday: 11.00am - 5.00pm, Monday: closed

This exhibition is raising money for the charity organization Parkinson’s UK. If you are not able to visit but would like to make a donation, you may do so by logging on to
