Description

Photographer Kate Bellis has been photographing Derbyshire Hill farmers to show a contemporary view of their lives today through the story of one Derbyshire hill

This story is a group project of four parts, which is shown at Buxton Museum until 6th June:

On the Hilltells of the farming families who earn their living rearing sheep and cattle on the hill, a working life that is set by the seasonal changes to the landscape around them.

Under the Hillfocusses on the Hill's network of disused mines, and on its quarries - still an important part of the local economy.

Shelter of the Hilltells of the various communities around the Hill and of the events and ordinary moments that aren't really ordinary at all. Kate has used some of her earlier work in this chapter as well as recent images to tell a human story of continuity and change on the Hill.

Above the Hillexplores the marks and features of the hill from above ground, and tells of the importance of the Hill to the people who live there.

Join Kate Bellis for an illustrated talk at QUAD in Derby on 17th May, 6:30pm to hear her journey of photographing farmers and their stories
