Saddleworth: Responding to a Landscape by Matthew Murray | November 2021

In collaboration with Elliott Gallery, we were proud to showcase a selection of images from British photographer Matthew Murray’s award-winning series “Saddleworth: Responding to a Landscape.” In this work Murray occupies a position within a long lineage of landscape artists, paying homage to the light and texture of Dutch Seventeenth Century landscape painting. 

The monograph for the Saddleworth series, also available for purchase at Republiek Gallery, was awarded first prize in the 2018 International Photography Awards. Murray’s impressive body of work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and his work is included in the collections of MOMA, New York, The Tate, London, The Victoria & Albert Museum, London and The British Library. Murray continues to live and work in Birmingham, UK.
