All England Waits
'I wandered out/ into the meadow/ I buried my face/in the grass for a while/ and wished the earth/ was you.' All England Waits was made in response to love letters from WWII housed in the Imperial War Museum archives. Written by women, the letters were sent to husbands, boyfriends and fiancées serving overseas. The work combines prose poems, archive ephemera and contemporary landscape images made at locations of relevance to the writers. My photographic practice is immersed in the landscape and is predominantly concerned with hidden histories. All England Waits articulates something of the experience of women in wartime, yet also transcends this context to speak more generally about love and the fear of loss.
