Details

For the first time in human history, more people are living in urban environments than in the countryside, yet the impulse to seek out nature remains as strong as ever.

This new exhibition of photographs by leading British photographers such as Shirley Baker, Bill Brandt, Anna Fox, Chris Killip, Martin Parr and Tony Ray-Jones explores our evolving relationship with the natural world and how this shapes individuals and communities.

Drawn from the photography collection of Claire and James Hyman, Modern Nature includes around 60 photographs taken since the end of the Second World War, through the beginnings of de-industrialisation to the present day.

The exhibition explores the merging of urban and rural landscapes, the rapid expansion of cities and the increasingly intrusive management of the countryside. The works on display are by turns poetic and humorous, occasionally absurd.
