A Brontë Reader – an exhibition by Helen Burrow

Exhibitions
Helen-Burrow_DCWEB
An exhibition of photographs by Lancashire Monochrome member Helen Burrow will be on display at the Photography Gallery, Dean Clough.
Synopsis
A decade ago two things happened. I saw John Day’s Holga photographs at a Lancashire Monochrome meeting and I went to Haworth with my husband George.
Being in Haworth Parsonage where the family lived sparked a connection with them as real people. I re-read Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights, discovered Villette, Emily’s poems and the Brontë letters. I also found Brontë connections closer to home, at Tunstall and Cowan Bridge.
George and I visited the cliffs at Kilkee in Ireland where Charlotte and Arthur Nicholls spent part of their honeymoon.
Holga images show me the world how I take it in – only a little in focus at once. They fit perfectly with how I feel about the moorland.
I know I could be fitted into a romantic artistic tradition, but I will leave that to other people. I just do what I enjoy.
The exhibition runs from Saturday 9 February 2019 – 14th April 2019, and is open 10:00am to 5:00pm every day. The exhibition includes a booklet of words and photographs.
All are welcome at the preview on 9th February at 12.00 on 9 February 2019 (parking free on Saturdays).

One thought on “A Brontë Reader – an exhibition by Helen Burrow

  1. A decade Helen ….. doesn’t time just fly by, especially when you’re working on something dear to you. It will be wonderful to see the pictures on the walls at Dean Clough after spending these years being aware of you beavering away quietly. And we can only thank John Day for his inspiration … as well as the sisters themselves.
