'Spots of Time' by Henry Iddon and 'Alternative Suns' by Jo Gane


Henry Iddon's photographs capture a virtually unknown facet of the Lake District landscape.

His photographs are 'spots of time' which capture the essence of a time and place, at night, making us view the familiar landscape through new eyes. They show the night time impact of humankind, set within the immensity of the broader landscape.

Taken from high on the Lakeland fells very late at night or in the early hours of the morning, by moonlight, the photographs ' some 10 in the exhibition - show the Lake District as almost never seen and certainly never before recorded by the millions of tourists who have visited it or by its residents. Iddon climbed 53 fell summits for the project and camped out for 19 nights, often in freezing conditions, spending in total 44 moon lit days and nights on the mountains. He employed his extensive photographic experience and intuition to imagine the aesthetic outcome of what were visually speculative nocturnal expeditions, an inevitably unpredictable exercise, where things never quite turned out the way he expected, but where the results are truly spectacular.

'Alternative Suns' by Jo Gane
The photographs in this series were shot during many long nights in the familiar landscape surrounding Jo's childhood home. Artificial lights punctuate the darkness of the landscape, imitating the natural glow of the sun during daytime, creating the atmosphere of never-ending day.
