A View from the Hill at the Somerset Rural Life Museum


In this personal reflection on Somerset today Matilda Temperley explores the people and places of her home county. Over the past year documentary and fashion photographer Matilda Temperley has been exploring the county with her camera.

As well as capturing Somerset’s wonderful distinctiveness, the project has also documented some of the issues facing rural communities. It includes portraits of the industries synonymous with the area such as elverers, peat-diggers, cheddar cheese makers, cider farmers and withy growers. It also reflects a rapidly changing landscape. Somerset’s alternative communities and its unmissable annual celebrations feature too.

“Looking a little harder at my surroundings has been an incredible adventure. It is more diverse and interesting than I ever imagined, and I have only scratched the surface,” Matilda Temperley
