Andy Sewell: The Heath

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on February 11, 2014 in Photography
  • With a history dating back over 1000 years, Hampstead Heath is an ancient urban park that has evolved into one of London's most beloved green spaces. At 790 acres, the heath is a sizable piece of (managed) nature in the heart of the city. Local photographer Andy Sewell brilliantly captures the serenity of the space in The Heath, an atmospheric series of images collected in a book of the same name.  

    "I go to the Heath to be somewhere that feels natural," he writes in the book's introduction, "but I know this is no pathless wood. The Heath is as managed as any other part of London, but managed to feel wild."

    Shot over several years, the images cover the changing seasons, evocatively depicting green glades, grassy clearings, pristine ponds, and the people that enjoy them. With a patient, intricate eye, Sewell captures the “still moments” that green spaces like the heath provide, while always reminding us of the human presence that's innate to them.
