Then & Now: An Enchanted Landscape Photographic Excursions Through West Penwith

17 January 2015 until 21 March 2015

Have you ever wondered how much our area has changed over time? This fascinating exhibition, curated by members of Penlee’s Photographic  Volunteers group, may hold some of the answers. Taking as its inspiration John Blight’s pioneering guide of 1861, ‘A Week at Land’s End’, the exhibition takes the visitor on an intriguing tour following in the footsteps of the Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century tourists. A selection of new photographs, specially commissioned for this show, will be shown alongside the historic work, revealing some surprising truths about the changes over the years.
