Leeds: Shade into Shade by Jorma Puranen

Friday, March 25, 2016 - 00:00 to Friday, July 1, 2016 - 00:00

Harewood opens the spring season with an exhibition of work by the highly acclaimed Finnish photographer Jorma Puranen.

His images are distinguished by his use of a special technique where he actually takes a photograph of the reflection of the image rather than the actual subject, producing images with a mysterious, painterly, shimmering quality.

Alongside the new work, in contrast to this carefully considered and quintessentially English landscape, we are showing photographs taken by Jorma of a truly wild landscape, the far north and the Arctic. Icy Prospects show just how different these `two norths` really are. 

The title of the exhibition has been taken from a John Jewell poem “Ode on Harewood” (1822). “Shade soften’d into shade” alludes to the light and shade in the landscape where different trees and shrubs would provide a mix of colours and textures.

Venue: Terrace Gallery, Harewood House, Harewood, Leeds LS17 9LG
