Sea and Shore Cornwall: Common and Curious Findings
19th April to 4th May 2013
The Eden Project
An exhibition of photographs and finds by Lisa Woollett near rainforest biome at the Eden Project.
To coincide with the publication of Lisa’s book, Sea and Shore Cornwall: common and curious findings, Eden is proud to present this exhibition, a mixture of photographs and finds from the book. Amongst striking photographs of the sea and shore are common and curious objects from Lisa’s collection, all found washed up on Cornwall’s beaches - from sea urchins, mermaid’s purses and cuttlebones to ‘lost soles’ and paintbrush handles.
