Drawings of Fore and New Bridge Street

Made by Auboné Braddon

Page added 9th January 2014

These drawings of Fore Street and New Bridge Street were made in 2014 over a period of 10 months by Auboné Braddon. Some would think that photographs would illustrate the streets just as well, if not better than drawings, but the artist's pencil and eye will emphasize many details that would not be so obvious in a photo. Auboné is a true Exonian–due to being born with poor eyesight he was educated at the West of England School for the Blind. Because of his poor eyesight he looks at the detail of his subject while making his drawings. The drawings were on display at the Exeter Community Centre for two and a half months. The most prominent businesses are named.
