Andy Sewell has been marching around the Heath for the past five years with his camera. As he explains:

I have spent many hours walking on the Heath. With this set of pictures I hope to convey something of what I was looking for and what I found. In a way this project is about perceptions of what is natural, but it’s also an attempt to explore what EO Wilson called the human condition of “Biophilia”, being drawn to somewhere that feels natural without knowing why.
