Photography of Chris Chapman

Chris Chapman is a widely published and exhibited photographer. His mainly black and white photographs of Dartmoor record its landscape and people over the more than 30 years he has lived there. Farming features extensively, including a page illustrating the experiences of city children at Nethercott Farm at Iddesleigh. The 2001 outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease is shown by its effect on a single farm, that of Ramscliffe. Among these moving documents, the sale of Truelove Farm marks the end of 5 generations of the Dennis family's residence there.

In the 3 Hares Project, in colour, this ancient symbol is pictured in this country and abroad. It figures in the religions of Christianity, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism.This is a truly fascinating project.
