Palimpsest: Landscape that has been shaped by many periods of geomorphic change, each change acting upon a surface that has already been altered by previous processes.
Carved into our perception of natural beauty are the scars of an industrial era gone by. The imprint, regrowth and reclamation after human interaction with the landscape are subjects of my work.
In Palimpsest, my aim was to reduce the vast landscapes to a small framed format photograph, with a now defunct Polaroid, I captured the remnants of the unnatural scenery. The limitation of the technology compliments the history of the subject matter and my attempt to regain the pause before taking a photograph.
