Double at the London Salon

At the same time, her husband Roger Ford FRPS has had his image ‘Five Alive’ awarded a London Salon Medal.  This image is also a family gathering, featuring their son William and Angela’s hand.


 The opening exhibition of the London Salon is at Fairfield Halls, Park Lane, Croydon, Surrey CR9 1DGC between 10 – 21 June.     Further details can be found on   Many congratulations to Angela and Roger.
