The River Meadow at the Pile of Stones
The River Meadow at the Pile of Stones is a series of photographs exploring the relationship between humanity and the environment in the English hinterland.
As the route of HS2 threatens to carve up vast swathes of countryside, experts fear this could severely impact the unique eco-system of England’s fragile chalk streams, which are under significant threat from population increase, excessive water use and winter droughts. While climate change threatens life on a global scale, the River Meadow images focus on the Chiltern Hills town of Chesham and the areas surrounding the River Chess – a natural chalk stream whose source springs in the town. They reflect the impact, balance and transition humanity has had on the town since the first settlers arrived in 8000 BC.
