Jil Orpen

My love for rivers started as a youngster in Mozambique, East Africa. This connection has grown increasingly having lived by the Nile and now on the banks of the non-tidal Thames, where I have met so many who have a similar river affinity. In an endeavour to interrelate my interest in photographic portraiture and the river I have, over the past ten years, held annual exhibitions in museums and historic buildings along the Thames river banks.
