In partnership with Photoworks, four young emerging photographers were selected in early 2021 to create a body of work inspired by four English Heritage sites of their choosing: Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland, Middleham Castle in Yorkshire and Tintagel Castle in Cornwall.
Each of the young photographers explored what heritage means to them, responding to the brief by offering an alternative perspective, and a new voice on Englishness and identity.
Working with English Heritage, Photoworks, and their mentors, they planned their shoots, managed their team and models, alongside the constraints of the sites to produce some amazing images. The final exhibition opened at Wrest Park in August 2021 and was on display until the beginning of November.
