This selection of photographs was made in September 2020 as a visual accompaniment to a Resonance Radio production entitled An Epoch of Rest. I followed the show’s creator, Patrick Bernard, as he walked the 15 km along the Hogsmill River, a chalk stream and tributary of the Thames. The resulting audio essay was based on the walk from Kingston to the river’s source in Epsom, and covers our changing relationship to space, Victorian science fiction and the transformation of everyday life.
Photographs were taken with a Pentax K1000 SLR camera using Ilford FP4 black & white film. It was a dry but grey day, which gives a silvery light.
Here is a link to the resulting Resonance FM show:
