‘Wavelengths' is an exploration of light, colour and form through the creation of transfigured natural images.

The result is a series of multi-layered image-scapes exploring the spectrum of visible wavelengths and my fascination with refraction and the interaction of light and glass, taking the images through the colours of the rainbow.  

These images are linked to a selection of poetry that provides a sidelight on the images.

One does not illustrate the other, but gives a different departure point for interpretation.

The poetry is chosen to have some relevance to the facing image  -  in a variety of styles, from 18th century to modern poets, and from well-known favourites to unknown poems.


Pauline Summerhayes spent her formative years in the North Yorkshire town of Whitby. Her father ran a small fishing fleet, but was also a fine violinist and artist. Pauline inherited his artistic talents along with his love of remote landscapes. She met her husband, Clive, at Leeds University where she read French and Russian, though English literature has always been a passion. After a car accident curtailed her enjoyment of hill-walking holidays with her family, she used their photographic talents to create her own landscapes. Her love of nature, beauty and poetry combined to create of this book.
