We are saddened to announce that the photographer Richard Denyer died suddenly on Monday 14 December 2015. We extend our sympathies to his family and friends in their loss. His exhibition will remain in the Hostry until Monday 11 January 2016.

'Affinity and Kindred' is a collection of colour photographs made in Norfolk and the Outer Hebrides between 2012 - 2015. The exhibition presents a selection comprising single images and diptychs in 26 x A1 size frames.

Norfolk photographer Richard Denyer – a well-known landscape photographer and former lecturer at Norwich University of the Arts – has spent the past three years travelling between his home just outside Norwich and the islands of the Outer Hebrides, capturing images which show the common humanity of the different communities.

The photographs, which have been made mainly in boatyards and places of worship in both locations, feature the people, their work and culture, and the landscapes in which they live.

The resulting images suggest surprisingly deep connections between the two places around culture, beliefs and native skills.

A sumptuous book, titled 'Affinity and Kindred', is published to coincide with the opening of this exhibition at The Hostry.

The book features over 100 photographs from the project, and includes an imaginative essay in response to the images by the novelist Will Self.  The introduction is written by David Matless, Professor of Cultural Geography at the University of Nottingham.

Free admission. For more information about the exhibition please visit www.affinityandkindred.com.
