Best Idea Ever

Coinciding with the 70th anniversary of the Dartmoor National Park, the exhibition of photographs celebrates the spirit of freedom to roam and the experience of beauty in Nature.

I love Dartmoor, its wide open spaces, its rugged landscape, dramatic rocky outcrops and sweeping sheltered valleys.  At first glance this landscape may appear desolate, yet it has been continuously inhabited and managed, since the Mesolithic, when the then upland forests of alder, oak and hazel began to be cleared by hunter gatherer communities, around 10000BC. 

My landscape photography is a homage to Nature, the experience of being outdoors, the heritage attached to particular sites, and our own inextricable link to the land.

Celebrating the creation of Dartmoor National Park 1951 2021

The Studio presents the work of three photographers whose practice is centred on Dartmoor.

The online exhibition celebrates the spirit of freedom to roam, the experience of beauty in Nature, the heritage attached to particular sites, notions of health and wellbeing, and our inextricable link to the land.

A series of livestream events, in conversation with the photographers / artists, discussing their practice and the wider context will be available for free.

Introduction

Bodmin Moor, Goon Brenn in Cornish, is a granite moorland in Cornwall, England, with one of the most complete and best preserved upland prehistoric landscapes in Britain. Occupying a surface of 80 sq mi, this profoundly evocative landscape includes Cornwall’s highest tors, Brown Willy and Roughtor. Many of Cornwall's rivers have their source here.

Since 4000 BC, the first farming communities assert their presence by marking the landscape with monumental stone structures.

This photographic body of work explores the Sacred & Ceremonial Landscape, shaped by our Ancestors on Bodmin Moor.

An independent, self-directed project begun in 2018, culminates with this online exhibition.

An exciting and eclectic programme of live online conversations with key figures, on the wider context of Bodmin Moor, Photography, Digital Art & NFT's will run throughout August 2021.
