Award-winning photographer Phil Rigby showcases many of his highlights originally seen in Cumbria Life Magazine over the last decade, as well as photographs from his own personal collection.
In his own words ‘The combination of fascinating people and an extraordinary landscape helps to make Cumbria a special place to live and work.’
“Phil Rigby has an eye for the striking juxtaposition; his brilliant portraiture finds unusual, even daring settings for Cumbrians in their native habitats; mountain, studio, office, farm, kitchen. His landscape work ranges from classic views to new ways of showing the Lakes that capture the wildness, serenity or otherness of it all”
– Stuart Maconie, Writer, broadcaster and Cumbria Life columnist’
“Phil Rigby’s photographs have been an integral part of Cumbria Life for 12 years. Whether capturing people in unique Cumbrian settings or giving a new perspective on classic Lake District landscapes, his pictures always make an impact. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see many of Phil’s pictures displayed together to beautiful effect.”
