A BARNT Green-based photographic artist and designer is opening his studio up to the public as a gallery in the lead up to Christmas.

George Benson who works out of a studio on Hewell Road in Barnt Green is throwing open the door to half of his space for the month of December in an attempt to showcase his work, much of which will be available to purchase.

He has founded two design agencies in the course of his career, working for clients including Audi, The Streets, the BBC, the Financial Times and Mastercard.
