Photographs by Phil Underdown.
50 pp., 23 color illustrations, 4x6".
When an abandoned airstrip was turned into a national wildlife refuge, photographer Phil Underdown began a 5-year process of documenting the contours of this artificial grassland. An archaeology of the present, the images depict the landscape of this time - managed but wild, planned yet unpredictable, expressed not through traces that have left their mark for centuries or millenium, but through phenomena that are more fleeting and ephemeral, some playing out over seasons or years, others lasting a mere afternoon.
Limited to an edition of 50 signed and numbered copies, the book consists of bound digital c-prints with a small inkjet print tipped in on the inside cover.
