Ray Manchester - Andrew Follows
Ray spoke about Andrew Follows, the son of past member Barry. Andrew is legal blind having only 2% vision in one eye. This did not deter Andrew who was driven to become a professional photographer. Ray first met Andrew after the devastating fires in 2009 that destroyed much of Kinglake through to Marysville including Narbethong. Ray visited Andrew’ public exhibition in Narbethong of the photos he took during that wild fire. He was incredibly impressed and began to follow his exhibitions in Melbourne (Urban Housing)  and overseas. He recommends that if we get a chance to visit one of his exhibitions grab it with both hands. (Apologies to Ray as the editor left Ray's notes at home and had to write this from memory - a fuller version will be published next week)
