E. Chambré Hardman: Landscapes
Hardman's business was portrait photography but his passion was for landscapes. He spent his holidays touring the countryside in search of views. The Landscapes exhibition focuses on the beauty of the British countryside and the play of light and shadow, as captured by his camera.
