Fen Bridges: Forty Foot of Vermuden’s Drain to the Great Ouse (2017) [16mm Film]

“My humble model for progress is the reclamation of land. Which is repeatedly, never-ending retrieving what is lost.” Graham Swift, Waterland

Fen Bridge responds to the environment of the Fens, exploring an artificial landscape that exists only because of human intervention. Filmed over one day it records bridges over a dike which carries water away from farmland to the river the Great Ouse.
