"The Children for Peace" choose Paul Wilcockson L.M.P.A for their Gala, aided by Diane Sutton.

The International charity “The Children  for Peace ONLUS” has chosen British photographer and artist Paul Wilcockson L.M.P.A to represent them, and at his request, he will be assisted by British photographer Diane Sutton, flown in especially from the UK, to work with Paul, on this glamorous and distinguished Gala event, held at the exclusive Hotel Villa Padierna on 4 June 2011.

The President of the charity Debbi Mace and the Vice- President  Lamia Kashoggi are both admirers of Paul’s work. The event will be compered by the glamorous Spanish star Ana Obregon.

It will be their first collaboration, and each is looking forward to the unique experience, of working with with the other in covering this event which will include a group of  children from the Middle East, flown in for the occasion, as well as over 50 talented Spanish and other national child dancers and ballerinas ( including two from New York) under the supervision and training of  their teacher Manuela Veronese.

It will be quite a task for Paul and Diane to capture photographically, the many delights Manuela and her enthusiastic dancers have prepared for them.   Paul is well known to many people on the coast, as he has lived and worked here, for many years and in fact, was born in Barcelona and though his parents were English, he spoke Spanish before he could English. He is considered by many, to be one of the very best photographers  in Andalucia  this view is reflected in him being chosen by The Children for Peace.
