Just outside of my town lies an old battlefield; the soil fought on by both the Jacobites and the Redcoats during the 1745 Battle of Prestonpans, in East Lothian, Scotland. In modern times, this is less apparent, since becoming farmlands and overgrown with nature. With this fine art project, I aimed to convey this conflict through tightly cropped, old-fashioned landscapes of the land; the resting places for the soldiers that took part, with trees and plants growing from where they lay. Similarly, I wanted the images to represent the healing of injuries for those who survived and highlight the recent industrialisation of warfare.
