These six images were part of the Northern Exposure exhibition at the Portico Library, Manchester 3-30 July, 2015.
They are part of a larger project called Earthworks, which explores the relationship between human activity and landscapes, but in particular landscapes that might now be considered wild, natural, or at least peacefully rural. Some of the most celebrated "natural" landscapes in Britain have in the past been subject to great upheaval, industrial activity and change.
Where traditional landscapes--especially Romantic landscapes--often contextualise the human in terms of the landscape, my aim here is to do the opposite. Here viaducts, canals, quarries and mines provide a context for the landscape by emphasising its "made" or intruded-upon state.
Each image is available (unframed) as an archival Giclée print on Canson Baryta paper. Image dimensions are 500x333mm, in an edition of 25. If you are interested in buying one of these prints, get in touch using the Contact button.
