In Transition: People, landscape and nature in the East Anglian edgelands

This practice-based research project aims to generate a body of lens-based outcomes that document the places of work, leisure and living spaces of migrant agricultural workers in East Anglia. Specific areas to be documented include large agricultural businesses and borders between these sites and the wider countryside.

To inform this practice, the research will include interviews and portrait sessions with migrant agricultural workers, specialists in biodiversity, charities supporting migrants and agricultural employers.

Outcomes from the project include a body of work that examines and represents the impact of large-scale agriculture and migration on our understanding of community and landscape.
