During the last 28 years Lee Chapman has travelled throughout Europe and America with his medium and large
A dedicated landscape photographer, his contemplative style of work relished these solitary travels, allowing
him to pursue the technical and creative possibilities that a large format view camera afford.
Inspired by the wilderness of America's National Parks in particular, Lee found the landscape of the Lake District National Park equally dynamic and challenging, and relocated his family to the Northern Lakes in 1998.
This allowed him to wander the lakes and coast, searching for that elusive and magical light, which can transform the ordinary landscape into something extraordinary.
In 2003, Lee and his wife opened a contemporary art gallery in Keswick, the heart of the Northern Lakes.
Alongside a mix of contemporary British craft, Lee showcases his traditional fine art Ilfochrome and exhibition quality black & white prints.
Set in the busy market town of Keswick amidst the stunning scenery of the Northern Lake District National Park, the Lee Chapman Gallery has over the past seven years become one of the premier galleries in the Lakes.
