Exhibition and Private View, Kendal Mountain Film Festival

The Warehouse Gallery in Kendal, Cumbria, is pleased to announce an exhibition by award-winning photographer Jon Wyatt. As part of the renowned Kendal Mountain Film Festival, he will be showing editioned prints from his series entitled ‘Naked’.

Photographed in mountain ranges across Europe, Greenland and North America, the prints feature isolated figures in dramatic, winter mountain landscapes. They are alone, exposed and vulnerable (ie naked) in these extreme and primal environments.

The images stand as a howl for the preservation of these ecosystems, and have received honours in both the Prix de la Photographie, Paris and IPA Awards.

You are invited to a private view on Friday 30th October and the exhibition will run until Sunday 22nd November.

The whole series can be viewed at www.jonwyatt.co.uk/portfolio

Award from Kendal Mountain Film Festival

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

In Nov 2008 I traveled to the UK Lake District to receive an award at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival where one of my images won the Professional Photography category. Three of my images were shortlisted in the top 10 public vote and the winning image was chosen by leading UK landscape photographer Colin Prior. The Kendal Mountain Film Festival is one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals attracting top adventurers, climbers, film-makers and photographers. As part of the prize I will be holding a solo exhibition at the next festival in November 2009.
