“I am blown away. I made the journey from Cornwall. Completely worth it!”

“Amazing words and pictures and trees. Beautiful, Thank you!”

“Incredibly beautiful, insightful and emotional. Moved to tears.”
Artists Rob Fraser and Harriet Fraser spent two years walking in all seasons, all weathers, day and night, to seven lone trees in Cumbria, and along the way walked with, and interviewed, environmental specialists, farmers, artists and tree enthusiasts. The Long View exhibition of photographs, poetry and 3D work reflects their time with the trees, and touches on wider issues of cultural landscapes and environmental fragility. The exhibition launched in Grizedale Forest last summer and will move to Oxford and Brighton later this year.

Rob Fraser and Harriet Fraser collaborate as somewhere-nowhere, using photography, writing, installation art and community engagement to explore environmental issues, emotional engagement with nature, and the cultural and natural heritage of place.
