Thames - Source To Sea Through the Seasons
A one-year photographic exploration of the River Thames from Source to Sea by kayak
My aim is to get intimate images of the river by being very close to it, on it - maybe even at times - in it. To show how it changes in character as it grows, flowing towards the sea and changing through the seasons.
This project began in January 2017 by photographing the source of the River Thames near Kemble and I will work my way down the river through the year, reaching the sea by December. By using a kayak, I can get into nooks and crannies that can't be accessed any other way.
The River Thames is a fascinating, meandering waterway that starts as a ditch in the Cotswolds, becomes tidal at Teddington and ends at Shoeburyness on the north bank and Sheerness on the south bank. I will end this project in December 2017 by photographing the Thanet Offshore Windfarm and the Maunsell Sea Forts in the outer reaches of the Thames Estuary, where the river flows into the North Sea on the East coast.
