WAM Feb 02-03 Greg Locke

Greg Locke's profile as a photographer lists international publication and awards for his prolific industrial, commercial, environmental and editorial work. Greg is also a "fine" photographer, and his portraits and cultural work are well known. But it has been fifteen years since Greg Locke exhibited any of his photographs. That changed this week, however, as Greg opened a show last night at Hava Java in downtown St. John's. The NSO Portraits is a series that captures musicians. Some of the photographs are whimsical, some are humourous, some are candid ... all are fascinating. I spoke with Greg yesterday before the exhibit opened and began by asking him, why wait fifteen years between shows?
