The Suffolk Coast – Reconnected

A photography exhibition by Gill Moon

1st – 2nd August 2015 10.00am – 5.00pm
New Room, Orford Town Hall, Market Hill, Orford, Woodbridge, Suffolk IP12 2NZ

Many photographers are familiar with the Suffolk Coast’s iconic landmarks; Southwold Pier, and Maggi Hamblin’s Scallop Shell on Aldeburgh Beach but explore a little further and this stunningly beautiful coastline will reveal many hidden treasures. From the rolling shingle seaboard to the mudflats, reed beds and salt marshes the coastal environments sit alongside heathland, forest and farmland creating one of the most diverse landscapes in the south of England.

Drawing on her love of the sea and a passion for the wild landscape, Photographer Gill Moon presents her vision of the Suffolk Coast; one that veers away from the popular tourist resorts and invites the viewer to connect with some of the less familiar and more natural areas this stretch of coastline has to offer.

From the buzz of the Port of Felixstowe to the tranquility of the Blyth estuary the exhibition features images from a variety of landscapes within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB and tells a story of this ever changing landscape through a series of waterscapes, landscapes and sailing action images.

The Suffolk Coast – Reconnected runs over the first weekend in August in the beautiful coastal village of Orford.
Date: 1st – 2nd August
Where: New Room, Orford Town Hall, Market Hill, Orford, Woodbridge, IP12 2NZ
