A little internet browsing today uncovered an interesting project underway by Lake District landscape photographer Phil Hulme and artist Diana Merrick. The two met at an art event and discussed the idea of a collaboration in which Hulme’s photographs would be interpreted as paintings by Merrick and the counterparts displayed side by side at an exhibition. The project later grew to incorporate the production of a 2014 calendar. The work of both artists is stunning and will be appreciated by all Lakes lovers. The calendar launch and exhibition will take place towards the end of November (details below) and pre-ordering of the calendar will be available soon from the porject website: http://www.lakedistrictcalendar.co.uk/
In the meantime, here are a few examples of the special work that forms this project (all images c/o http://www.lakedistrictcalendar.co.uk/).
