Visitor Code:
Please go quietly as possible when visiting the hides.


Byford combines unimpeachable technical prowess with an artistic virtuosity that confounds even a non-artistís determination not to be impressed. Always competent, often offbeat and compelling, and more occasionally inspiring, John has the ability to both capture major situations, or just fleeting moments, in a way that is both original and yet does full justice to the situation.


John’s project will be on display for all visitors throughout the SO Festival 2012 and is free to view.
