Modern Nature. Photographs from the Hyman Collection, Hepworth Wakefield

We are delighted that the Hepworth Wakefield (Museum of the Year 2017) have curated an exhibition from photographs in the Hyman Collection. "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. It explores the merging of urban and rural landscapes, the rapid expansion of cities and the increasingly intrusive management of the countryside. Rather than present a Romantic dichotomy between the rural and the urban, the exhibition presents a more contemporary sensibility that is frequently situated in the edgelands, the often scruffy margins, in which town blurs countryside."
