Embark on a journey through the beauty of the Peak District this summer with the stunning monochromatic exhibition in honour of the precious National Park, produced by landscape photographer Doug Chinnery.
The ‘A Walk in the Woods’ exhibition will be on display in the Peak District Photography Gallery between Tuesday 19th July up until Wednesday 31st August 2016. It captures the essence of the feeling you are granted whilst walking through these picturesque woods, providing a truly unique perspective on natures beauty in still-life. The lack of colour enhances the textural qualities of the images, creating an aesthetically pleasing collection of contrasting images.
The man behind the magic of these captivating photographs, Doug Chinnery, is a writer, teacher and full-time professional photographer with quite a collection of achievements, having appeared on BBC radio and shown exhibitions at both the National Theatre and Mall galleries and the Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton.
Doug commented “I am delighted to be exhibiting my work at the Peak District Photography Gallery – these images are from a new project so this will be their first public showing. I hope everyone will enjoy them.”
He added: “During a trip to North Wales I stumbled on a radical technique that introduced a lack of control to the making of the images. It resulted in photographs which I felt captured what the woods ‘felt’ like rather than what they ‘looked’ like and I found this so much more satisfying.”
The exhibition will be open from 9.30am until 5pm every day, and entry is free of charge. So why not take a trip to the Peak District this summer and experience both the real-life magic of the woodland, as well as taking the opportunity to see a unique view through the eyes of a camera? The exhibition is located near one of our luxury camping holidays, where you can have the full experience of nature glamping in comfort in one of our shepherd’s huts!
All sales from the exhibition will be donated to help the Peak District National Park.
