Samuel Knight is an MA photography student based in Brighton, UK. His photographs explore the relationship between us and the land we inhabit in a temporal context, looking for signs that describe how we have constantly adapted and changed the landscapes we settle in to suit our various ways of living. Elements of familiar landscapes are presented stoically and with reverence, allowing the spaces to quietly tell a story through temporal indexes that exist within the visible area. The outside observer is offered an opportunity to see the history of the landscape, and envision potential futures for the spaces contained within, with the aim to reaffirm the importance of the natural space left around us.
