Claire Harkess RSW

A Wilder Place
In this body of new work Claire looks at aspects of rewilding through images of animals native to the UK. As the title suggests, in A Wilder Place she accesses past, present and future; the shared, romantic idea of our country once fully inhabited by ancient lineages of wild animals; the reality of the survivors we have seen or at least know are alive and the possibility of the return of many species long gone.
