Terra Cognita - Untamed

Nigel Dickinson

French Forests After the Great Storms (2000-2005)

In December, 1999, two massive storms raced across France, that destroyed 8 percent of its woodlands. Woods which were planted and managed by man were relatively harder hit. A year later Nigel Dickinson photographed the damage. Five years later he once again photographed the woods, to record the differences in the recovery of the woodlands that were being permitted to restore themselves naturally and those where human interventions were being made to encourage their recovery.
