Selected photographic works by John Cockshaw. Landscape, architectural and macro photograpy are combined to illustrate locations from ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
Photographic artworks in which landscape, architectural and macro photography are combined to illustrate locations and dramatic scenes from J.R.R Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Inspired by the author's detailed and evocative written descriptions of landscape, the focus is set largely on the varied locations of Middle-earth. To allow the character of Middle-earth to stand as a living, breathing entity at the forefront of each composition any story references in the individual pieces are largely suggestive and characters, where any appear, reside either on the periphery of the scene or are set small within the frame. The selection is chosen from a collection of 50 pieces, which forms an ongoing project.
Works are on display in the mill tearoom and admission to the tearoom is free. Admission prices to the historic mill apply.
