The Broads is a place with a sense of uniqueness, with a unique biodiversity and ecology rich in plant and animal life. Lying below or at sea level and adjacent to the sea a complex network of cuts, dykes and drainage pumps maintain a landscape once beneath the sea. Fragility, temporality, loss and narrative – people made, created and constructed this place, they built their homes, lived and worked here, investing themselves within this location.

Work began on this project in early February 2016, where over a period of several weeks many walks were taken and recorded through drawing and photography. With the use of archival material, maps, aerial photography and historic texts, three walks to one location formed the focus for this project. This Broads engraving #5 was completed 2017
