Urban Woodland - 08

by Chris Page


During the Summer of 2020 I had photographic project on the go with weekend treks to explore some of the many natural woodlands around Kent.  One area I had focused on was the high ground between Whitstable and Canterbury.  Located in this area is Blene Woods; split into three woodland areas with a different character to each I had much to investigate and explore. I would take the back roads from Whitstable driving the lanes into the heart of the Blene Woods finding a spot to park-up to begin that weekends photo walk.   


One thing I noticed on the drive was that my route had to cut across the Thanet Way Motorway by-pass, and it did this by driving under it rather than a bridge over. Although I was out to photograph nature, trees, flowers, wildlife and alike, I was also intrigued by this brutal concrete structure every time I whizzed pass in the car.  So I made a plan to made a dedicated trip just to photograph this Urban Woodland. 


Cutting through the lush green Kent countryside this Motorway Underpass has become a contemporary Art Gallery, but without visitors. Is this Art in the Community or an arranged Political Appeasement to the Community for brutal effect it has had on the area?  Regardless, this location is only really seen (or not seen) by motorists speeding pass, of which I am sure there is very little recognition of the effort made.


A Collection of eight photographs exploring the tones, textures, angles and light that is created by this outside art installation, and the way that nature has a way of creeping its way back in.
