About Colin Shaw
I have been a photographer for over 40 years and have always had a fascination with the land. This project is part of ongoing work exploring the modern relationship of people to the land and how landscape is depicted in visual images. For me it is always a two way process; how people use and shape the land and how the land shapes people. It is also an intensely personal exploration of my own relationship with landscape. Previous projects have included “Farmwork – Men and Women on the Land” published by Chatto and Windus and shown as touring exhibition to over 80 venues in the UK and Ireland and “M40 Warwickshire” at the Ikon gallery Birmingham. The Farmwork and M40 projects are housed at The Museum of English Rural Life at the University of Reading.
