The scintillating power of magic resides within story telling, singing, dance, music . . . and fire

Around 10.000 BC, nomadic hunter-gatherer groups begin to decline, whilst agrarian communities establish their pre-eminence. The time scale, includes various groups over a period of millennia, is known as Neolithic, New Stone Age.

Neolithic communities introduce beliefs & technologies, harmonising, whilst also harnessing Nature.

Land becomes a means of production for crop growing and rearing animals, through selective breeding, to provide food, wool and other materials. Utilitarian crafts like pottery, weaving, wood and stone work, flourish, and often include ornamental abstract patterns, bridging form and function. Astronomy and mathematics are widely used.

Neolithic monumental stoneworks, denote a symbolic human sense of belonging and transcendence, even though their meaning escape us, we remain in awe.

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.

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.
