Robert Sheppard and Trev Eales: Poetry and Photography on Tentacular 3: Heather Baron Gracie and IAMDDB (hub post)

Trev Eales is a photographer specialising in live music who lives in Cumbria. For over 20 years, beginning in the early 1990’s he photographed for WOMAD. Over the past 10 years he has contributed as a photographer and reviewer to a variety of online publications covering major UK music festivals: Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, etc. Photographs and reviews: Web with many more photos:

Here are some results...

The reason there are no ‘images’ on this page? Because you only have to click above to see the latest (and the preceding) images (and poems).
