About

PREVIEW: Wednesday 8 October 2014, 6 pm - 8 pm EXHIBITION DATES: Thursday 9 October - Friday 31 October 2014 TIMES: Monday - Friday, 10 am - 5 pm Saturday 11 / 18 Oct, 11 am - 3 pm Views of Matlock Bath channels visual traditions and tropes from both photography and painting. George Miles' sublime large-format photographs explore how the land is used, viewed, and mediated: both physically and through its representations. This much loved local valley, championed for its picturesque qualities by the tastemakers of their times including Byron and Ruskin, bore witness to the consolidation of the English Landscape tradition, the birth of the Industrial Revolution, and of mass tourism. In this show these interconnections and the relationship they bear upon how we view the landscape are explored through a re-presentation of a selection of images from the book that this exhibition accompanies.
