‘I am absolutely thrilled to have my work exhibited at such prestigious venue that is renowned for its celebration and promotion of fine art (as well as its sublime hospitality)! The fact that during The Championships Cannizaro House will be teeming with the great and good from the tennis world is a wonderful opportunity for me to show my work to a wider audience. Wimbledon tennis photography is my passion and I have an enormous respect for the event,’ says Duncan Groves.
