Upper Calder Catchment Area harks back to the famous Boxing Day floods that affected the north of England in 2021. How to describe a process that has taken an era; that becomes invisible through the length of time it has taken?

The work buys in to the pictorialism of the early pioneer photographers from that time but it is disrupted alluding to the changes that we can see happening in the environment now.
