Through The Years” is a demonstration of storytelling by Warren through the still image, featuring powerful and striking images, many of which have been displayed around the world in exhibitions such as Master of Prints, Royal Photographic Society, FIAP and PAGB.

The presentation features many works which have been merited with some of the most prestigious of photography accolades.

Many of the images are in a style not typically seen in photography clubs or presentations.

The photographs cover a variety of subjects, including travel, sports, street, environmental portrait, and many more genres of photography.
