Durlston Castle, Swanage, hosted an exhibition of Helen Muspratt photographs from 20 June – 12 July 2017. The Fine Foundation Gallery on the cliffs was a lovely venue looking out over the sea. The exhibition concentrated on her early years in her Swanage Studio with some of her experimental work with Lettice Ramsey in Cambridge. It attracted summer visitors and many local people, some of whom remembered Helen and, particularly her sister Joan who took over the studio after Helen left for Cambridge.

“Full sun, azure sea and these haunting black and white photographs – thanks for introducing a wider audience to the work of an incredible woman”
“Just the most inspiring exhibition! Having visited Swanage since my childhood this gives me another sense of connection with the place – THANK YOU”
