Exhibition explores link between Dales landscape and its people

The people and places of the Dales are spotlighted in an exhibition in Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority's Yoredale offices in Bainbridge from next Monday (18 July).

Capturing a way of life ... the work of Guy Carpenter.

Photographer Guy Carpenter is showing images that highlight the link between the landscape and the people who live and work in it.

Guy said: “The photos were taken by me over the last couple of years. I grew up in the Dales – Swaledale, specifically – and after living away for over a decade, I moved back in 2014 to pursue my passion of photography.

“My most popular works tend to be local landscapes but, more than just being out on the hills with rocks and sunsets, I like to see the Dales as a landscape shaped by humans.

“The stories of the places and people are what interest me most, so when I go out with my camera I also always carry a notebook and pen, as I like to document the interesting everyday life I see in the Dales.”

Richard Burnett, the authority’s director of corporate services, said: “The landscape of this beautiful national park has been shaped by its inhabitants over thousands of years and these photographs illustrate that link perfectly.

“This is the latest exhibition to be on show in the reception area of our offices and we are always pleased to be able to give artists the chance to showcase what they can do.”

Guy is displaying a selection of his work at The Firebox Café in the authority-owned Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes and some of this material, along with new pieces, will make up the Yoredale show.

People and Places in the Dales runs Monday to Friday until 16 September.
