Chiswick Author Alan Bignell Publishes Second Book
Tells story about how everything that could go wrong did at photographic exhibition
Chiswick author Alan Bignell has just published his second book, 'The year I made an exhibition of myself’. It recounts his experiences leading up to and following his photographic exhibition at a Holland Park gallery in 2017.
The experience took Alan into areas that were completely new to him and situations where just about everything that could go wrong did go wrong. The gallery lights failing moments before the exhibition opening was just one example.
The book describes these struggles with humour and insight and concludes with a frank appraisal of the venture's successes and failures.
'The year I made an exhibition of myself' is available on Amazon along with Alan's first paperback, 'The year I became Al' which chronicled his opening 12 months in Canada after emigrating there as a young man.
Alan lives in Bedford Park, with his wife and son. During the time he lived in Canada and for several years after he returned to the UK, he worked as a copywriter in advertising. However, for the past twenty years he has taught the Alexander Technique both in Chiswick and in Central London.
He also plays guitar in a music group called A Wing and a Prayer which performed country and Irish music at care homes in West London prior to lockdown.
A Kindle version of Alan’s Book is available on Amazon.
