MINI PHOTO PROJECTS
This is like my online sketchbook; a place to experiment and make connections.
On my weekly litter picks in the Rhondda I've been photographing discarded face masks.
The land is changing.
Farmland. Coal fields. Natural Resource Wales. Wind Farm.
In 2020, streets in the village where I now live experienced devastating floods. again. and. again.
The trees from the forests made of non native species were fell above these streets. Tree stumps, branches and debris was left on the now barren land.
These images were taken on the Rhigos mountain, a site of the most recent tree felling on the mountain range that separates the Rhondda Fach and Fawr. I saw this alien blue line painted on stacks of fell trees in the shape of a meandering river. A coincidental visual connection between the deforestation and the floods in my village.
An investigation declared Natural Resource Wales not at fault.
Caught in the wind. Changing sculpture.
