Mother displays pictures of 800km pilgrimage with sons

An installation telling the story of a Spanish pilgrimage undertaken by a mother and her children will be held at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead.


Melanie Gow, 48, took hundreds of photographs when she and her sons Ben and Harry, then 12 and 16, embarked on the Spanish Camino de Santiago trail in July.

Following success with an exhibition of the pictures held at Maidenhead Town Hall last year, the Windsor resident aims to enhance visitor's experience with video and sound.

She said: "We are going to turn it into installation art."

"As you enter the exhibition people will follow the walk chronologically around the room."

Entitled 'Walking with Angels' it will include projections and sound effects as well as items from the 800km trek.

Visitors can view Melanie's work for free at the theatre venue in Altwood Road on Thursday, March 27 at 7.30pm where she will also be giving a talk.
