The two and a half mile walk will follow footpaths around Kestle Barton and Helford and involve climbing a few stiles, occasional muddy tracks are also likely to be encountered. There will be a maximum of eight places on the walk to ensure that everyone is fully involved in the shared experience.

A Photo Walk

with Jem Southam

Thursday 30 May
2pm – 4pm

Fully Booked

Jem Southam will lead a walk from Kestle Barton during which he hopes to discuss approaches to photographing landscapes. The genre of ‘Landscape’ has gone through a period of significant transition during the past forty years, stimulated in part by a growing understanding of just how complex our relations to the places we live in and walk through are. Participants are invited to bring both cameras, thoughts and questions.

Email or phone 01326 231811 (after 1 April) to book a place on the walk.

These events are supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
