Altered Lands
Project info

In this series I have travelled to various locations around the world in order to create a provocative visual exploration of our relationship to the earth by using it as a resource. On one level we can admire the design, structure and industriousness of our ability to extract what we need to support our quality of life, yet we also need to acknowledge the breadth of the impact these processes can have. Many resource driven practices take place in restricted access areas and hence remain hidden from view and beyond out collective sight. By taking to the air, these altered lands are unveiled and presented here with a striking visual strength for us to both witness and reflect on their unnerving beauty and often hidden impacts. Can we find a sustainable balance between our resource needs and the impacts of the extraction processes and the wellbeing of earths natural ecosystems?
