I started a little landscape project at the end of 2014 with a few ideas to explore and see where it took me. My initial interests were in the fringes and man-made boundaries of the countryside landscape.
I began to find it inetresting to look for disturbances on these fringes, dens and rope swings made by kids who's garden's back on to the woods, fly-tipping, trodden paths, strategically placed branches to make walking the boggy soil easier or the odd discarded wheelie bin.
Whilst observing and recording the various boundaries something that occurred to me was how nature itself was seemingly ripping out some of these man-made boundaries, tossing them aside or slowly swallowing them up. Nature fighting back and creating it's own barriers and boundaries.
I suppose you could say that I started looking at the project in a more profound way, I started to understand that our attempts to 'own' the land were quite futile and that the landscape can never be really owned, just simply borrowed.
Hopefully the project is beginning to evolve. These images were all taken on an outing on Tuesday 20th January 2015.
