A short walk from my house runs a river. A big, long river, crossing three countries. I decided to follow it from its source to the sea. This is not a comprehensive geography, just some things that I liked the look of along the way. Most simply reflect the atmosphere. There is not an inch of it that is natural: everywhere it has been worked, canalated, embanked, or otherwise built up, and the photographs show the shifting proportions of man and nature at different points.

This was my post-lockdown project for 2023.

Below are some of the highlights. A 72-page booklet is also available.
