How should we live on this pla­net? Can we lead ful­fil­ling lives whilst sustai­ning the envi­ron­ment on which we depend for our well­being and sus­ten­an­ce?

In a world increa­singly dedi­ca­ted to mate­ri­al con­sump­ti­on, dri­ven by a sen­se of ent­it­le­ment to exploit natu­re wit­hout limit, the­se ques­ti­ons have beco­me cri­ti­cal.

Sett­le­ments is a pho­to­gra­phic record of a small num­ber of com­mu­nities and indi­vi­du­als, based in Bri­tain, who are quiet­ly buil­ding and explo­ring alter­na­ti­ve land-based, low impact ways of living, that address the­se issu­es and dilem­mas.

Taken bet­ween 2004 and 2015, the pho­to­graphs chart a peri­od in their evo­lu­ti­on and growth seen through their homes, infra­st­ruc­tu­re and com­mu­ni­ty por­traits. They are accom­pa­nied by intro­duc­tions writ­ten by the com­mu­nities, and texts by the aut­hor that explo­re con­nec­ted his­to­ri­cal and con­tem­pora­ry issu­es.

Tog­e­ther they reveal a way of life that chal­len­ges the main­stream, sug­ges­ting dif­fe­rent nar­ra­ti­ves for the future and con­tri­bu­ting to our collec­tive ima­gi­na­ti­on.
