Charlcombe valley lies on the edge of the Roman city of Bath, far from the well-maintained historical city centre; a bridge between the rural and suburban. Reaching out into the Somerset farmlands, this is a shared landscape, a place for walkers and wildlife alike. I walk in the valley every day to gain a sense of calm and clarity. It is a place to think and breathe. However, it is also a place that exists as an unmaintained shortcut, holding evidence of a conflicting relationship with the environment. These images aim to reveal the intricacies of this overlooked, marginal space and reflect upon the wider struggle between caring and indifference, an imbalance that is yet to be resolved.
