Barlow

Barlow Common was torn apart by industrial use for 100 years. Now it is reverting to a new kind of stability. Cared for enough to allow it to grow carelessly. The soil seems poor which makes for a sparse landscape which includes these banks of teasels. By shooting low into the light I aim to emphasise the strangeness of these natural shapes, hoping to maybe find a bit of menace.
