332 - Christmas Reflections in Cromer.jpg

Date published: 19th November 2018

North Norfolk District Council is proud to be hosting an exhibition by Norfolk photographer Paul Macro, with his work on display at its offices in Cromer.

The Seasonal Coast exhibition highlights the natural beauty of Norfolk’s coastline throughout the year.

“The face of Norfolk is not a portrait that remains in the same pose from January to December but is an ever-changing canvas of mood and expression – it’s unpredictable and irresistible,” said Paul.

“Norfolk’s bright tapestry of dark winter skies and rough seas, fiery sunsets and blood-red poppy fields, pebbled beaches and wind-slapped greenery is there for us all to see, all year round.”

Paul, who was born and brought up in Norwich, added: “Seaside holidays played an important part in my childhood. Several times a year, my family spent holidays and weekends in our caravan, where the beauty of Norfolk’s unspoiled beaches and wide skies provided the backdrop to our other world, where there was peace and contentment and sibling harmony.”

All the prints are available to buy for £40, and Paul also has two Norfolk Coast Books and a range of 2019 calendars available via www.paulmacrolandscapes.com. Alternatively, call 07727 644092 or send an email to info@paulmacro.com

The exhibition runs until January 11 at NNDC’s Holt Road offices. The 1st Floor Gallery is open to the public 8.30am-5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10am-5pm on Wednesdays; and 8.30am-4.30pm on Fridays.

The council seeks to offer free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the well-lit gallery, giving staff and visitors the opportunity to see a variety of work. Six exhibitions are held annually.
