The new exhibition celebrates the character of Norfolk’s wildlife, with an especially fond focus on the brown hare.
Local photographer and Commercial Manager, Alan Dixon captures most of his subjects in his garden or on his organic mixed farm.
He said: “Hares are my favourite subject and there is a healthy population on the farm. They are not that difficult to photograph but, like all nature photography, success depends on careful observation and planning, sometimes with a little discomfort and boredom thrown in for good measure – there is rarely any luck involved!”
Wildlife of farm and field: an exhibition of wildlife photography opened August 23 and runs at NNDC’s gallery until September 22, 2016.
NNDC seeks to offer free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the 1st Floor Gallery in the Council’s Holt Road offices in Cromer. Currently six exhibitions are held annually.
Cllr Becky Palmer Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture said: “This is a super collection of photographs and we are very pleased to be able to host them. It’s great to be able to offer new or established artists a space to exhibit their works. It is often the boost they need to gain a wider audience.”
The NNDC Gallery is open to the public on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8.30am – 5pm; Wednesday 10am – 5pm and Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm.
