Nene Park host a Barking exhibition by local photographer, Chris Porsz

Dog-loving visitors to Nene Park are in for a treat as an exciting photography exhibition by local photographer, Chris Porsz, is now on display in the heart of Ferry Meadows. 

A retired paramedic and well-known street photographer from Peterborough, Chris travelled all around the world capturing candid photos of canines for his published picture book ‘Barking’. Many of the these photographs were taken here at Nene Park, which inspired Chris to dig into his archives and create a fascinating exhibition to celebrate our four-legged friends. 

Chris commented: “I would like to invite all dog lovers and their best friends to come and enjoy some of my favourite canine images that I have taken over the last decade in our wonderful Nene Park. Many of which have never been seen before, not even by their owners! Set in the most beautiful and relaxing surroundings you will find my exhibition fun, colourful, action packed and absolutely barking! If my pictures raise a smile then that makes the footslog in all weathers worthwhile.” 

Park visitors will find the exhibition on the path running alongside Overton Lake, from the Visitor Centre to Badger Play in Ferry Meadows. 

Adrian Oates, Head of Fundraising and Marketing at Nene Park Trust said: “We are delighted to be able to host such a heart-warming exhibition and we hope that our visitors enjoy the wonderful pictures of our most loyal companions. They may even spot themselves, friends or family in the exhibition!” 

To enjoy even more candid canine photography by Chris Porsz, visitors can pick up a copy of his Barking book at the Ferry Meadows Visitor Centre, Gift & Farm Shop for just £5!
