Photo Gallery: Peter Aitchison at Gateway Gallery, Hale
Ah, the 90s. It was a simpler time for daytime telly. Fewer rage-filled men shouted the odds from a sofa and instead we tuned in to a former lockkeeper’s cottage to get our fix of early morning entertainment. Throughout the 90s, photographer Peter Aitchison acted as official studio photographer for the likes of The Big Breakfast and the first series of Big Brother, and took snaps of many stars including Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Sean Connery and Samuel L. Jackson.
Now living in High Peak where he runs a gallery, Aitchison has turned his lens to striking travel photography. During recent trips to India, Cuba, Instanbul and Myanmar, Aitchison has captured stunning images of both portraiture and street scenes.
Peter Aitchison’s solo show is showing at Gateway Gallery in Hale from May 18 – 31, 2019.

@PurpleGooner Phenomenal Woman is our favourite but love the fact the congresswomen in the US are quoting this one in response to Trump.
People shouting 'send her back' at Trump rallies, the future PM waving a kipper around, warnings of a UK recession thanks to Brexit. We've never felt so simultaneously depressed and baffled by the state of the world. Think we'll look at photos of kittens for the rest of the day.
Thought for the Day: "You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise." - Maya Angelou
