Inland is about the significance that the history of a place can hold for our perception and understanding of the landscape. The photographs have all been made within two miles of where I have lived for the last twenty-six years. In this Somerset valley, deep geological time and the history of inhabitance are evidenced in the physical and material forms of its limestone bedrock and Neolithic remains. However, the landscape also reverberates with the felt presence of its past, and in the daily experiences and encounters of my walking, a sense of those early settler's inhabitance is almost tangible. I am drawn by the significance that these echoes can carry for our current and future relationship with nature.
