We snatch in vein at Nature's veil,
She is mysterious in broad daylight,
No screws or levers can compel her to reveal
The secrets she has hidden from our sight.
(extract from Faust by Goethe)
"tenderfoot" is a show curated by Grace Hannell, bringing together six photographers who each interpret a natural environment essential to their lives in six different ways. Here, we see Forest, Fenland, Moorland, River and Ocean, depicted visually through the eyes of young photographers, attempting to understand the natural environments around them, both directly personal and those they learnt to love, and recognize what power they hold in a world so preoccupied with man-made distractions.
