By Angie Burke:
An exhibition of photographs from the James Ravillious (1972-1989) and Roger Deakins archive, including rarely seen images of Hartland. Come along to the Parish Hall to enjoy these archive images and share your memories of Hartland.
The exhibition will also include photographs by James Ravilious and Roger Deakins selected from the recent Beaford exhibition HERE held at the Burton Gallery.
You’ll be able to explore the photographs, listen to the voices of local people and view new work inspired by the Archive including abridged audio files of the play HEFTED, a unique performance commissioned by Beaford.
You’ll discover how the themes within the archive impact on the lives of people living in North Devon now and you’ll be able to add your own responses and help to shape the ever-evolving Archive.
We invite you to bring along a special local photo from your collection for us to copy and add to our display.
These archive images spark discussion and ideas about community and connection with the land – a springboard to tell the stories about our lives past, present and future.
This one-off exhibition in Hartland is a chance to share photos and memories, and meet friends old and new.
Tea, coffee and cake will be available.
This event is being hosted by Resurgence Trust, Hartland, in association with Beaford, an organisation that connects artists and communities within North Devon finding extraordinary ways to explore our land and lives.
About the Beaford Archive
The Beaford Archive is a unique collection of material about North Devon dating back to 1890. It is best known for its photographs by James Ravilious, for whom the Archive was his life’s work, and it was one of the first commissions taken on by Roger Deakins, an Oscar-winning cinematographer.
