Sean Stansfield Exhibition
Over 70 people attended Sean Stansfield's wonderful, but all-too-brief exhibition of large-format film photography at Belmont House on 9 December. It was a stunning display of how a photogrpaher can reveal new angles and insights into a subject as familiar to most of those present as Belmont and its surroundings. And the superb detail of the large-format film used, coupled with black and white prints that drew the viewer right into the heart of each shot, made the event a real triumph.
The folk attending were mostly from Unst itself, and were able to see the house's glorious interior as it itself displayed Sean's photographic insights into what is Britain's northernmost Georgian country house. Its potential as a venue for events and as luxury holiday accommodation was obvious.
