Understory: New Series of Work

Understory is a new series of work, the culmination of an 8 month project undertaken in the Tamar Valley as part of an MA in Photography. The work explores the dense forest plantations that have replaced the mining industries of the 18th and 19th centuries, environments in a continual state of transition both through natural process and human intervention. Although classified as Areas of Outstanding Natural beauty, these are anthropogenic landscapes – constructed, shaped, transformed by human activity that continues to alter the ecology of the space.

An abridged selection of the Understory series can be seen here on this website

The full series has been produced as a book, published through Bobs Books which can be seen here.

Understory is currently being exhibited as part of the Masters 17 show at Plymouth College of Art until 11th September
