While staying in the forest I had the chance to explore a disused farmhouse that seemed to have been abandoned some time ago.
This first image (above) is the only one I have altered in Photoshop - washing out some of the colour. All of the other photographs shown here contain the amazing colours that were present in the scene, with no manipulation from me.
I couldn't get in to the house itself but I was able to explore the side rooms and farm buildings that had been left open to the elements.
As a city girl I have no idea what these pens are for. Please enlighten me if you recognise them.
When I stumbled into this barn (below), filled with pigeons and memories, I felt like I was entering a sacred place. My heart pounded in my chest and my hands shook as I took these pictures, trying to capture the deep magic in the atmosphere.
My first adventure in my new nomadic life took me deep into the forest to stay with a community on a reclaimed MOD site.
I don't have the words to describe the tenderness, liveliness, music and friendship that I found there. I was welcomed with genuine warmth and felt honoured to be there.
I left smelly and serene, with the feeling that I had made some friends in that peaceful space.
I will be visiting with my camera as often as possible and one day I hope to publish a full story of the place and it's development. In the meantime these pictures will have to tell the story I can't.
On July 1st I handed over the keys to an empty Bristol house. I had been living there happily with my friends for several years in the city we have come to love.
At dawn that morning I drifted through our empty house, stripped clean of traces of us. A liminal space no longer our home, but not yet anything else. This is where I make my break with the comfortable life I have been wearing a groove in for the last 9 years and embrace the potential of free movement.
This picture was shot on that morning. It is my goodbye to Bristol...
I am no longer settled anywhere, I am drifting between places exploring the world as I find it.
As I journey I will be collecting small & incidental images along the way.
An attempt to capture my experiences of this nomadic life.
As and when I get the chance I'll share these pictures here
