"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 millennium, but through phenomena that are more fleeting and ephemeral, some playing out over seasons or years, others lasting a mere afternoon."

  1. A gem of a book. Crisp images and wonderful tactile feel. I'm surprised if it hasnt sold out already. The reclamation by nature presents an apparent mundane subject in a refreshing wave of renewal.
