ARCHIVE – Harris Tweed: From the Land
FRIDAY 12 FEBRUARY – SUNDAY 15 MAY 2016 // Cumbrian landscape photographer Ian Lawson and The Harris Tweed Authority, guardians of the iconic Harris Tweed Orb Mark, have come together to create this new exhibition. Set within the context of Ian’s deeply personal narrative, ‘Harris Tweed – From The Land’ is a journey into the very heart of the Scottish Outer Hebrides, the remote and romantic home of the world-famous Harris Tweed cloth.
In this stunning exploration of people and place, these most special of islands are brought to light as never before through this exhibition of wonderful images, words, film and physical objects connected to the Harris Tweed industry. Ian’s project on the Outer Hebrides culminated in a beautiful 400+ page book “From the Land“ with over 250 images, which is available to buy in the gallery shop, along with Ian’s cards, a range of carefully chosen Harris Tweed products and a new ordering service for the large format prints.
