Landscape photography is summer attraction at Southwell Minster

An exhibition of landscape photography will be an added draw for visitors to Southwell Minster this summer, when the ‘Masters of Vision’ opens on Saturday 30th July.

The exhibition, becoming a biennial event at the Cathedral, showcases the work of legendary landscape photographer David Noton and eight other acclaimed photographers.

Photographer and writer, Pete Bridgwood is the creator behind the exhibition, he said: “I wanted to create something spectacular, something that will bring visitors to Southwell.“ The exhibition will bring together an established master in the field with other photographers, including some emerging talent, allowing them to exhibit their work alongside each other.
