Sherwood

Sherwood Forest must be one of the most famous areas of woodland in the UK, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year from around the world. For the less adventurous the short walk from the visitor centre to the Major Oak is now available on Google Street View, but even on the busiest days there are large areas where you can walk for hours barely seeing another person.
I wanted to show that there's more to be found when you get off the main footpaths and explore some of the hidden corners of the forest, within 30 minutes walk from a crowded visitor centre you can be on your own in a peaceful woodland or a vast open heath.
This started in December 2016 and turned into a yearlong photography project, with around 25 visits to different areas of the forest producing a series of 100 images.

A book of the Sherwood series containing a selection of the images was released by Kozu Books in February 2018, you can read more on the book page.

All of the images are presented below in the order they were taken.
