The Floods series of photographic work by Joseph Wright explores the antithesis of the pastoral landscape, grounded in its Englishness.

The often overlooked, unnoticed or ignored wooded places that we pass by as we go about our lives; scruffy patches in the corner of fields, by the roadside, behind industrial estates, all remnants of a once heavily wooded and valued countryside – forming parts of the edgelands; land now abandoned with no perceived use being reclaimed by nature.

The series takes the viewer on a part autobiographical, documentary and environmental journey into these places. Set in and around the North Wiltshire town of Swindon following prolonged periods of heavy rainfall which led to some of the wettest years on history in the southern part of England in 2012-2014.
