Photography Exhibition outside the Museum
The exterior of the Museum has been transformed by photographer Ellie Smart. Her wonderful ‘Gaea’ photos will be on display outside the Museum this week.
‘Gaea’ is a photographic project by Ellie Smart, that explores Paganism in the UK through a collection of pre- Christian religions and spiritualities. The project follows people on their pathways through Paganism, which aims to generate a positive discussion about an often-misunderstood way of life.
There will be a pop exhibition of Ellie’s photos outside the Museum for a week from Friday August 12th to Friday August 19th 2017.
Above: each of the photos comes with explanatory notes. The notes above go with the two photos above the witch door.
