about

An album and collection of photographs that document the beginning of the recovery process following a severe back problem.

It's about wandering through the suburbs, taking in the mundanity but also seeing how inherently fascinating it all is. How life, whatever the situation, goes on. Eventual trips out further afield, to isolated rural areas, industrial hinterlands and nowhere places. It's about how we, as humans, make our mark on the ancient land.

The name of the project was inspired by the discovery of Starlings nesting in the wall of the flat. Life finding a way. Nature adapting to human infrastructure. They just get on with it.
