 Details: For this group event, we'll be visiting Houghton Hall in West Norfolk for Antony Gormley's Time Horizon exhibition. 

Some info on the exhibition from the Houghton Hall website:

'Time Horizon, one of Antony Gormley’s most spectacular large-scale installations, will be shown across the grounds and through the house at Houghton Hall in Norfolk from 21 April – 31 October 2024, the first time the work will be staged in the UK.

Featuring 100 life-size sculptures, the works are distributed across 300 acres of the park, the furthest away being approximately 1.5 miles on the West Avenue.  The cast-iron sculptures, each weighing 620kg and standing at an average of 191cm, are installed at the same datum level to create a single horizontal plane across the landscape.  Some works are buried, allowing only a part of the head to be visible, while others are buried to the chest or knees according to the topography.  Only occasionally do they stand on the existing surface.  Around a quarter of the works are placed on concrete columns that vary from a few centimeters high to rising four meters off the ground.

Antony Gormley is one of the most important artists of his generation and is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space.  His work has been exhibited throughout the UK and internationally'.

Admission to Houghton Hall and Gardens includes the exhibition, house, walled garden, deer park and sculpture park. The plan is to make this a full afternoon. We'll start around and in the house then after a break for lunch move on to explore the walled garden and parkland. Due to the scale of the exhibition there is no set finish time for our visit, our pre booked session time runs from 11am until 5pm. Attendees are free to leave at any point in the afternoon (after letting me know).

This event is aimed primarily at beginner and hobbyist photographers but is open to everyone who loves photography, art, the outdoors and the Norfolk coast/countryside. Any camera type is fine (smartphones included).

Please don't worry if you're new to photography, beginners and hobbyists are most welcome. Group walks/workshops aren't intended to be in depth/technical tuition sessions but more of an opportunity for like minded folk to get together to practice taking photographs (with some gentle guidance and direction). If you have any concerns or questions before booking your place, please just drop me an email.
