Artists / Sophy Rickett


During a residency in 2000 the combination of Grizedale, the surrounding countryside and minimal light pollution, provided Sophy Rickett with an ideal outdoor location to continue her nocturnal photographic series of 'Untitled Landscapes' in both rural and urban locations within The Lake District and Cumbria.

‘Palm Trees’ (2000), taken in Los Angeles, was followed up with 'Pine Trees' (2000) taken in Grizedale.

In 'Burning Bush', the light from a sodium street lamp transforms some anonymous motorway shrubbery.

A publication 'Sophy Rickett: Photographs' can be found in the Lawson Park library, including her work at Grizedale.
