Artist of the Week: Pete Hackett

This week our Artist of the Week is Lyme Regis-based photographer Pete Hackett. Pete originally studied Fine Art in Hull, in the 1970s, and since then has been self-employed, travelling the world with his job. He thinks of himself as an Artist/Photographer/Carpenter, and began taking photos to use in other projects which never materialised, to the photos themselves became the 'work'.

Pete also makes sculptures, and sells and exhibits his work whenever he can. He is currently part of an exhibition on at the Malthouse, Lyme Regis: Three by Three. The exhibition features the work of three photographers over three months, and is open until Friday 23 December, 11am-4pm daily. 

We will be hearing more from Pete this week, but do have a look at his Shed Profile, and get in touch for any further info!
