An exhibition of new images by the award-winning photographer, Matilda Temperley, capturing Somerset over a year.

In this personal reflection on Somerset today, Matilda Temperley explores the people and places of her home county.

Over the past year, she has been exploring the county with her camera. As well as capturing Somerset's wonderful distinctiveness, the project has also documented some of the issues facing rural communities.

It includes portraits of people working in industries the area is known for, such as elverers, peat diggers, cheddar cheese makers, cider farmers and withy growers. It also reflects a rapidly changing landscape. Somerset's alternative communities and its annual celebrations feature too.
