Lobster pink skin, cheeks tingling and a serene mental state. ‘Biophilia’ - “an innate and genetically determined affinity of human beings with the natural world.” This body of work follows my journey of sea swimming in coastal environments around the UK. There I document myself within the landscape, whether it's after the swim or just before the plunge. Surrounding myself within the wilderness enables me to thrive and appreciate the natural world, particularly when the human relationship with it is so troubled. With the sun hitting the water’s surface, the light creating tones of blue and the sounds of the sea waves in the shallows - being within the water without disturbing the flora and fauna brings such happiness.
