In a Green Shade: The English & Nature

New in summer 2020: an ongoing environmental portrait project, taking a wry and affectionate look at the English & Nature, exploring & celebrating our diverse connections to nature and the land.

I am travelling across the country to meet people and be introduced to the patch of green, the environmental job, the outdoor pursuit or the eco-volunteer role that is important to them: from paddle boarding on urban canals to feeding the ducks on a prized pond; from nurturing a window box to rewilding an ancient estate; from managing the industrial complex of a mega-farm to tending a beloved allotment; from advocating for environmental reform or running a reserve, to leaving food out for a hedgehog; from scaling mountain tops to walking the dog. “Annihilating all that’s made / To a green thought in a green shade.” (Andrew Marvell, The Garden)
