Geoffrey Willey / A Life Through the Lens



Geoffrey Willey was an avid photographer and a long-standing supporter of Ryedale Folk Museum. When he died, aged 103, Geoffrey left his collection of photographs, slides, cine film and cameras to the Museum.

Rich with fascinating insights and rarely-seen images and footage, this exhibition charts the passions of Geoffrey's life through a selection of his photographs and film, celebrating and reflecting on the full life Geoffrey led.

Discover some of the weirdly-wonderful roles that Geoffrey held in his long career, and peep into the past with scenes of Yorkshire as it used to be.

This exhibition has been extended for the rest of the season.
