HILL

photography, poetry, film, sculpture, song

Hill is the story of one Derbyshire Hill, told by a gathering of five artists. Photographer Kate Bellis, poet Lucy Peacock, songwriter Carol Fieldhouse, film maker Gavin Repton and sculptor Sally Matthews have spent 18 months working working with the hill, at this point in its many millions of years of life, and HILL is the result.
