An unconscious documentation of what was a tough period for me. The images were initially taken with a Canon Powershot G12. The subject was the Downs in Benfleet, Essex. The Downs have been manicured and landscaped but still retain elements of wilderness. The shots were taken in November 2011 when I was sick and on long term medication.
The images have a dream-like and/or bleak claustrophobic quality to them. In hindsight quite appropriate although that was not my intention at the time. The brambles and gorse form an impenetrable barrier of thorns with no obvious way through.
