RWA Interview With Brian

Vivienne Kennedy interviews Bristol RWA artist and rock star Brian May

The Royal West of England Academy in Bristol is currently hosting A Village Lost and Found, a collection of 59 photographs taken by Thomas Richard Williams, the master of Victorian stereoscopic photography.  The photographs are owned by rock star Brian May who, working with photo-historian Elena Vidal, has revived them.  May has designed and produced a new focusing stereoscope, when viewed through it the photos leap into 3D and the scenes really come to life.

The exhibition runs until 04 March and Brian May will be visiting the RWA at 4.00PM on Thursday 26 January to sign copies of the accompanying book and to chat to visitors about the photos.

Vivienne spoke to Brian recently about the exhibition, his animal welfare work, his music and a little about his future plans, we also chatted about his breakfast cereal preferences and which TV dance show he really enjoys watching.
