SIMON BRIDGES - PHOTOGRAPHER
Simon Bridges captures photographic images of landscapes in broad vista and textural detail. Simon has little interest in photographic technology and focuses more on composition and mood.

Eve is currently studying for an MA in Illustration at the Manchester School of Art and has exhibited in the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition in 2017 and 2018.
Named after the elephantine jumble of rocks on the edge of kinder plateau, the gallery is home to photography and artwork unashamedly intended to trigger a memory or evoke an image of a visit to the area.
The gallery also has an eclectic collection of objet, glass, ceramics, homewares from Scandinavia, and a range of ethically sourced gifts.

Harry lived at Hill farm in Hayfield from 1947 to 1950 where he began his love affair with landscape..

It was a great day and the students produced some fantastic experimental outcomes. Big thank you to Ian Whadcock for the opportunity!
A am thrilled to have been working with BA students on Illustration with Animation at Manchester School of Art. I have been helping them with a project based around the theme of ‘time’.
