New Barry Feinstein exhibition opens at National Portrait Gallery, London

Thanks to Gordon Macniven

“In case you don't know, the National Portrait Gallery's exhibition of Barry Feinstein's 1966 photos of Bob began on 11 May and finishes on 30 August.

“The NPG is a magnificent gallery so well worth a visit. The exhibition is in the basement. Not worth a special journey but definitely worth a look if you're near.”

(NPG is in central London, just off Trafalgar Square, round the corner, east of the National Gallery - GS)
