As photographers we are often guilty of romanticising woodland. Searching out the cleanest compositions, the most pleasing conditions and the nicest light. However, woodland can be a dark and daunting place, often the location of folklore and horror stories.
While it’s one of my favourite places to explore, at times it feels uneasy and the imagination runs wild. The paths narrow and get overgrown, the trees close in and the undergrowth becomes dense and wild.
The Periphery of Darkness looks at the edges of woodland, where the light picks out dense intertwined branches guarding the darkness beyond.
