Uplands (2014)

The Pennine moorlands overshadowing the post-industrial towns of the North of England define the character of this area of Britain. This landscape created the conditions for industry to develop and at the same time a means of flight from urban life. But to the families of former migrant workers drawn to the region by its once dominant textiles trade, these hills remain a largely un-travelled-to backdrop to urban existence. ‘Uplands’ explores this Northern English landscape from another point of view – reimagining and reconsidering the uplands as a landscape of home.
