On Saturday 10 October, under the shadow of darkness, an event with a difference will take place on Morte Point. Nobody Asked It To is a new and original photography exhibition celebrating the amazing coast of North Devon.

The National Trust and Joshua Day Photography are inviting guests to experience one of the area’s most exceptional places – but with an added twist. The photography will be displayed under the stars, for a magical experience by moonlight. With nature’s lights turned off, the event aims to draw attention to one big question, ‘what does nature do for you?’

Growing up on the North Devon coast Joshua has always had a close relationship with nature through surfing, fishing, wild swimming and photography. This inspired him to pursue a career in nature conservation and, through the National Trust Academy ranger training programme, he joined the Woolacombe, Croyde and Morte ranger team.

The exhibition brings together all of Joshua Day’s passions. The North Devon coast and countryside has a rich variety of habitats and ecosystems that support a huge diversity of life. As humans not only do we depend on it for our living and sustenance, but also as a place for enjoyment and personal reflection. The exhibition hopes to explore the precious and individual relationship we share with nature.

The National Trust is also excited to be exploring Joshua’s relationship with nature through a short film that will be premiering at the Nobody Asked It To exhibition.

To capture our imaginations a series of YouTube trailers are being released. You can see the first one here. The following two will be released during weeks beginning 14 and 21 September.

To buy your tickets call 01598 763402 or head to either the Woolacombe Tourist Information centre or the National Trust Heddon Valley shop. Tickets are £10 for adults and £5 for children.
