Winter Gardens Refurbishment

Blackpool Winter Gardens Interior

In November 2010 work began on restoring Blackpool’s Grade-II listed Winter Gardens back to it’s original Art Deco glory. Blackpool Council appointed architects Donald Insall Associates to begin phase one of a restoration process that will take a number of years to complete. The Floral Hall and iconic dome was completed earlier this month, so I thought I’d head down with my camera to take a look.

The Winter Gardens is a historical important and iconic building that attracts a huge number of tourists to the resort every year. I’ve attended conferences, gigs and shows in this fantastic venue and I’ve always enjoyed photographing it’s intricate architectural detail and warm atmosphere.

Blackpool Airshow 2010

Blackpool Airshow Display By Yannick Dixon Photographic Works

On Sunday 8th August 2010 thousands of people gathered on Blackpool beach to admire a fabulous air display.

The event took place between South and Central piers just after 4pm and began with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight which featured a historic Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster Bomber.

The Breitling Wing Walkers (the world’s only formation wing-walking team) were also there and, to conclude the airshow, the RAF Red Arrows Formation Team performed a spectacular aerobatic display.

Blackpool Revellers

Blackpool Revellers By Professional Photographer Yannick Dixon

This photograph entitled Blackpool Revellers is semi-inspired by the article Personal Projects Can Make A Difference written by Grant Scott for Professional Photographer magazine as it inspired me to take a closer look at the current direction of my photographic practice and, more importantly, to continue shooting new images for my personal projects. Like many photographers, personal work is the driving force behind my creative inclinations and an important aspect of any artistic practice.
