I have a photographic exhibition at Stockport Art Gallery in the West Gallery showing my photographs that featured in the Lyme park celebrations for 200 years of ‘PRIDE AND PREJUDICE’ with ‘The only way is Pemberley’ in 2013.

Images will be on display at Stockport Art Gallery in the West GalleryDates for show: 11th August to 18th September 2015

Press release by the National Trust for the original show:

His bold and vivid photographs capture the iconic views and landscapes Jane Austen so colourfully describes and Elizabeth Bennet so understandably falls in love with

It’s nearly two decades since Lyme Park featured as ‘Pemberley’ in the 1995 BBC television adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’. Yet today it is still remembered as the backdrop to the scene when a soaking wet Mr Darcy, (played by Colin Firth), emerged from his swim in the lake to meet a startled Elizabeth Bennet (played by Jennifer Ehle).
