White Peak, Dark Peak - picture preview
Images of a "visual odyssey" by photographer Paul Hill across the Peak District between 1978 and 1990 are on show in London for the first time in 20 years.
Peak, Dark Peak, an exhibition of photographs curated by John Ferreira is at the Eleven gallery in London until 20 August.
The show is the result of his journeys across the Peaks over a period of 12 years which was turned into a book of the same name, now long since out of print.
In part inspired by Minor White, Hill’s landscapes are produced within a tight tonal range of grays, whilst the skyline, invariably, has been removed from the image.
The Ludlow-born photographer has lived in the Peak District for half of his life. It is the subtle tracks and scars left by people and animals over time on the landscape and the impact of the seasons that are the focus of his work.
Hill is considered to be one of the most influential British photographers of the last 30 years.
“Hill’s photographs position him among those land artists, from Capability Brown and Humphrey Repton to Richard Long, whose special relationship with the land lie at the heart of their aesthetic.” - Lewis Baltz.
