Edgelands

Torness

Torness

First coined by Marion Shoard, the term edgelands refers to those in-between spaces created by urbanisation where space for nature still persists alongside cities, towns, shopping centres, motorways, canals, and so on. These zones sit between urban and rural areas, and they also sit uneasily between the two categories of urban and rural, often defying an easy definition.

Working in my usual areas of liminal spaces at the edge of towns this seemed like a natural extension of other projects that I’m working on, again this is an image dump and I will be working on these images to choose which I want to use to represent this idea, book and exhibition.
