The brief for this assignment was to “produce a body of work that explores a particular place, type of space or theme relating to landscape practice”.  The themes that I chose to explore – and indeed have been exploring throughout this course – were nature and slow violence.  Specifically, I wanted to produce a photographic series that would address the consequences of human impact on the ‘natural’ environment.
