Paradise Lost commemorates a lake and woodland, untouched and left to grow wild. Home to an abundance of nature, it was a place to be alone, to reflect. It was paradise. The site has been sold and public access denied. This work reflects upon humankind’s ability to inflict harm in the quest for profit, exploring how the desire for personal wealth and exclusivity supersedes collective appreciation and the innate instinct to protect the natural world.

Elements from this environment were incorporated within the processing of this work and the uncertainty of how the film would respond to human interference mirrors the uncertainty about what lies ahead for this particular habitat. The making of the photographic work was made possible with support from the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
