Found in the Fields, an exhibition by painter, printmaker and illustrator Carry Akroyd inspired by the works of the 19th century poet John Clare, is on display at Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery until 5 September.

Selected poem texts appear both within and alongside images. The artworks are the product of two decades of making images provoked by the artist’s reading of Clare.
