Visitors to Durlston Castle this month will be able to enjoy a stunning new exhibition of photographs showcasing the wildlife and landscapes of Purbeck, by talented wildlife photographer Julian Sawyer.

The Isle of Purbeck is one of the richest areas in the country for wildlife and Julian’s evocative and sometimes humorous photographs explore this extraordinary landscape, getting ‘up close and personal’ with the astonishing and beautiful wildlife of this very special place.

Enjoy the pictures, discover the stories and techniques behind the work, buy prints or cards to take home and meet the photographer, who will be on hand throughout to offer advice.

Julian Sawyer said: “Photography has always been something that has interested me but it was only with the onset of digital cameras that I could afford to get serious. Nature and its place in the landscape is another passion and the two interests are tailor-made for each other. Recording what I see, being able to show others what we have around us and encouraging them to discover this for themselves is really what Purbeck Footprints is all about.”

The exhibition is open every day between 11.00am and 4.30pm in the Fine Foundation Gallery at Durlston Castle from 11-20 May. Entry to the Park and Castle is free and all work is for sale.
