Over the last five years Andy Sewell has spent many hours walking and photographing on London’s Hampstead Heath. Once part of the countryside surrounding the city and now deep within the urban landscape, it is a place of ancient trees, tall grass and thickets dense enough to get lost in – if only briefly. I go to the Heath to be in an environment that feels natural, yet I know this is no pathless wood. The Heath is as managed as any other part of London but managed to feel wild. – Andy Sewell.
The Heath project will be published in Spring 2011 and exhibited at the Host Gallery, London. To find out more about the book click here.
