Pete Johnstone: West Wight People & Place


Pete johnstone 1

26th Jan – 13th May 2017

What gives a place its sense of place? It might include, location, landscape, buildings, folklore, culture, local history and probably much more. To photographer Peter Johnstone the defining characteristic is the people themselves.

People who live and work in an area, whether born and bred or a more recent arrival. As a recent newcomer to the Island he set himself a challenge - to find the sense of place of West Wight through photographing people and asking them about their connection to ‘their’ own place in the West Wight.

West Wight People and Place seeks to capture the contribution that people are making to this diverse rural community, be it around the sea, landscape, heritage or the community itself.

The exhibition preview is on Thursday 25th January 6-8pm, All welcome, free entry.
