Friday 25 March – Sunday 24 July 2016

Harewood opens the spring season with an exhibition of work by the highly acclaimed Finnish photographer Jorma Puranen. During a short residency at Harewood, Puranen will photograph Harewood’s landscape and the Lake (one of Brown’s most significant contributions). His images are distinguished by his use of a special technique where he actually takes a photograph of the reflection of the image rather than the actual subject, producing images with a mysterious, painterly, shimmering quality.

Alongside the new work, in contrast to this carefully considered and quintessentially English landscape, we are showing photographs taken by Jorma of a truly wild landscape, the far north and the Arctic. Icy Prospects show just how different these `two norths` really are.

The title of the exhibition has been taken from a John Jewell poem “Ode on Harewood” (1822). “Shade soften’d into shade” alludes to the light and shade in the  landscape where different trees and shrubs would provide a mix of colours and textures.
