So often, our relationship with nature is determined by our ability to understand, harness or nullify it. ‘Wilds’ is a body of work concerned with this fraught relationship. The work addresses our increasing struggle to interact with the natural world within an urban landscape, and how we use built environments to substitute nature’s awe.

Shot across France between 2020-2022 ‘Wilds’ journeys from the humbling scale of the French alps, to small bourgeoning moments found between the pavers of central Paris.
