A TALENTED York photographer has launched his first exhibition at a popular bar in the city.

Keen photographer Kieran Delaney is 24 and lives in Heworth. He works as a photographer and decorator and is a member of The Press Camera Club.

He's long wanted to hold his first exhibition and says the event at Pairings wine bar in Castlegate is like "a dream come true".

He said: "I have worked so hard on this, and I’m so happy to finally say my prints are up for display and for sale at Pairings.

"I love to photograph York so to have my work exhibited here is a bonus.

"I’ve always wanted to exhibit my work for others to see and to even potentially sell my images, it’s crazy.

"This is a dream come true for me. It makes all the work well worth it.

"Feel free to come down and check it out over a glass of wine.

"You can find the prices of the prints in the bar, and my work is available at Kieran Delaney Visuals on Facebook and Instagram."

Kieran studied photography at All Saints sixth form for two years and says he's always had a passion for photography, taking pictures on his phone until eventually he was treated to a DSLR camera as a birthday present.

"Taking up photography for me was mainly because I loved the idea of documenting the things we see and being able to capture that forever," he said.
