Joe Cornish at Fountains Abbey


Recommended Posts

We visited Fountains Abbey near Ripon in Yorkshire today and discovered an exhibition of photos by Joe Cornish. Joe was commissioned to photograph the world heritage site pre Covid, but when the pandemic struck he continued to work in the deserted estate. The result is a fabulous set of photos that are exhibited in various buildings around the site, with the majority in the old water mill.

 

Well worth a look if you are in the vicinity and especially if you are a member of the National Trust !

That's fighting talk round here- have you forgotten the threats and deletions!

 

Fraid I've joined the dark side Mark, been volunteering for them  for a few years now.

 

Have to agree that their stance on photography is more than a tad heavy handed however. By all means charge film crews, maybe ban tripods, no flash in the buildings etc but allow folk to take and sell photos of what is in effect, their own property.

In London today and stumbled on the Travel Photographer of the Year 2021 winners exhibition. An outdoor exhibition which starts from Kings Cross station and on into Granary Square at Coal Drops Yard.

Well worth a visit.
