The Orphaned Spaces, MW Bewick and Ella Johnston
"A beautiful mixed media piece of art and publishing", Maria Isakova Bennett, Coast to Coast to Coast
The Orphaned Spaces is an illustrated exploration of overlooked areas of natural beauty – edgelands, ex-industrial, derelict and brownfield sites, and the sometimes rare flora and fauna that is found there. More than a nature book, it is a rumination on life, loss and time, through the prism of liminal spaces captured in moments between dilapidation and regeneration. The book is the culmination of a multi-discipline collaboration by poet MW Bewick and artist Ella Johnston.
The Orphaned Spaces is also available as a limited edition, made-to-order box set.
