‘Landrise’

 

Landrise is a study of the topography created by landfill hidden within our landscape. The series documents these sites through their transition as active landfill to what is officially noted as historical landfill.

Over time, their primary use becomes visually deniable as the land is redeveloped for recreation, commercial or industrial use.

The projects title was inspired by the literature of Robert Macfarlane written in his book Landmarks where Macfarlane refers to such change in the landscape as Landraising.
