Hi Views

Commissioned by Sustrans to research the significance to local people of public land alongside the River Witham, I traveled along it with a scaffolding tower, stopping at three points for a day each. I invited passers-by to climb the tower, take Polaroid photos and have conversations with me about their familiar place; its atmosphere, their memories and the altered view from above. I attached the annotated Polaroids to the tower over the course of the journey.
