Rev Stephen Collinson: February 2018
I am mounting a photographic exhibition at The Keld Resource Centre from Easter Monday, 2nd April to Friday 6th April 2018. It will consist of 25 photographs of Upper Swaledale. Entry is free, though donations for the work of The Keld Resource Centre would be appreciated.
A photographer since childhood, I also much appreciated the Yorkshire Dales since Youth Hostelling there as a teenager. A Minister for over 37 years, I have been ministering for the last four and a half years in the Tees and Swale Pastorate which includes Low Row and Keld United Reformed Churches in Swaledale. In 2015 I gained the Licentiate distinction of the Royal Photographic Society, and continue to develop my approach to landscape and visual art photography. Although this exhibition is a glimpse of Upper Swaledale largely in the landscape genre, I am increasingly combining spirituality and photography. An appreciation of the natural world and reflection upon it, however, can always have a spiritual dimension.
I will be present throughout the exhibition and also Minister in Residence, leading short morning and evening prayers in the Chapel (9am and 6pm) each day. A visit to the exhibition could be combined with a walk in the wonderful countryside of this part of the Yorkshire Dales, enjoying a time to relax and reflect in the Chapel or the Well-being Garden, and joining in the relaxed time of prayer on the Easter theme.
