Avalanche UK (2011)

Each location in this series is the site of a fatal snow avalanche. All locations are in the UK.

The UK is not known for terrain susceptible to snow avalanches but having witnessed them elsewhere, I was curious. My subsequent research uncovered a surprising number of documented incidents.

Photographed in failing evening light in early winter, the sombre locations still seemed to reverberate to the climactic events that had unfolded there. Landscapes so apparently inert and still, yet capable of such immense kinetics and displacement. I’ve used double exposures to represent the traces - the echoes - of those convulsive moments of terror and transformation.
