A sense of mystery prevails in the scenes William Clift, Linda Connor and Michael Kenna capture. Featuring lyrical interpretations rather than documentary fragments, their black-and-white photographs reveal moments steeped in history. This exhibition brings together their pictures of an ethereal, serene world that will invite visitors to consider meanings beyond visible details.
