TOWPATH

I have always been fascinated by the edges of places, where civilisation gives way to nature. Canals are such a place, as they meander through Industrial landscapes, passing behind corrugated fences, abandoned factories, underneath motorways and out into lush bucolic havens, the water inhabits a strange borderland between city and countryside.

Towpath follows a walk along the hundreds of miles of canal towpath that connects the river Thames in London with Birmingham, along England's most important canal, The Grand Union. The photographs are intended to be both a portrait of a post industrial landscape in the process of redefining itself, and a meditation on the transient nature of all things.
