An exhibition of Norfolk Coastal landscapes
By Jeremy Webb
Thursday 12th September-Saturday 9th November (extended opening dates)
This exhibition shows a series of coastal landscape photographs from Webb’s 15-year-long project to document the changing landscape of the Norfolk Coastline.
Neither romantic “Poppyland” nor dry documentary, the images instead reflect an idiosyncratic view of the landscape and often respond to the eccentric or the unusual, where the natural world and the manmade environment collide.
The images from this project are being shown for the first time and represent a tiny extract from the project which has grown over time to encompass the entire coastline of Norfolk – from Heacham and its west-facing coastline right the way round to Hopton on the east coast, just above Lowestoft on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.
Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, and by Norfolk County Council Arts Project Fund.
