On December 5th, 2015, Storm Desmond hit the North and West of the United Kingdom, smashing rainfall records, and causing widespread flooding and destruction. Rothay is a collection of photographs taken in the aftermath of the storm, recording its violent effect on the landscape of the Rothay river valley, and the many strange and beautiful changes that took place. The project explores our relationship with the landscape, and the subtle ways in which it changes at the edge of what we see.
In 2019, Rothay will become an exhibition and a book. I’ll have more information soon. In the mean time, view the gallery for a small selection of images.
