wading through thick black peat
Hayden Wilde is a photographic artist, working in primarily analogue processes, who focuses on the topics of home and the rural landscape. Set in rural Devon, Hayden’s former childhood home, wading through thick black peat is his most recent project where he investigates the sentiment ‘being a stranger in an intimate space’ – specifically the idea of returning to a landscape that you have a particular bond with but are no longer a part of. Created through a series of road trips with his dad, Hayden builds on a sequence that reflects on childhood attachments and belonging through a dream-like, broken narrative.
