Brought to Light: the photographs of Rupert Potter

Venue: Wray Castle, Lake District, United Kingdom

Brought to Light showcases the photography of Rupert Potter, father of Beatrix, in a never before seen way.

A keen amateur photographer, Rupert, like many of us today, spent time on his holidays taking family photographs and capturing the beautiful locations where he spent his summers, including Wray Castle and Derwent Water.

To bring these nineteenth century photographs to a modern audience the original prints have been scanned and enlarged onto lightboxes hung in the dining room. Photographs of the interior of Wray capture the fine detail of wealthy life and provide the best record that we have of Wray Castle at this time. Rupert’s shots of the wider landscape show his passion for the scenery and skill as a photographer.
