Diary of An Ordinary Place

Masham Gallery, 24 Market Place, Masham HG4 4EB
10:00 - 15:00

​An extraordinarily beautiful contemplative photographic reflection on a single square kilometre of land throughout the year. Steve Christian’s project reveals how we can all find something new and unexpected without journeying far from our own front doors. He takes the Marfield Wetlands, just outside Masham, as his subject and shares his experience of looking closer at life surrounding him within what initially appears to be a reasonably unremarkable area of scrubby land. The exhibition features 18 high quality signed limited edition prints from Diary Of An Ordinary Place, a large format art book produced by Masham Gallery Press.

We’d like to offer the community office £5 from any of the book sales from now until the end of the year. The books are large format beautiful linen covered, embossed hardback books, they feature photos of Marfield throughout the year and are priced at £35.
