HOME Dartmoor is an exhibition of works by the internationally-acclaimed artist Garry Fabian Miller, one of the most highly-regarded figures in camera-less photography. This exhibition of his luminous artworks is a moving tribute to Dartmoor, which has been the artist’s home and inspiration for over 23 years. Fabian Miller has had major exhibitions in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo, amongst others, so this exhibition is a homecoming.
Dr Tom Greeves, an expert on the history of Dartmoor contributes to the exhibition. Flints from RAMM’s own archive are on show, which were collected by Captain Oscar Grieg (1889-1969), from north Dartmoor, and represent the earliest-known moorland people from up to 10,000 years ago. This exhibition is a truly fascinating portrait of Dartmoor and a world-class contemporary photography show. It includes Fabian Miller’s first new prints made from leaves since the 1990s.
A new publication HOME Dartmoor, Garry Fabian Miller, is available from the Garden reception at the special price £12.95 for the duration of the exhibition; the normal price is £16. It is a casebound, 160 page book with 76 colour plates, published by Filtow, Newton Abbot.
