Assignment 5 for Body of Work
The majority of visitors to Windsor Great Park follow the same routes as their predecessors, constrained by their own preconceptions of the area, afraid to leave the beaten path and create their own experience. These preconceptions have been created by images and text in magazines and social media, an imagined geography that develops the Tourism Space that is Windsor Great Park and is then itself modified by that Tourism Space.
In my exploration of the Park I’ve come to love those other areas, the ones that lie outside of this predefined space but require the visitor to step off the beaten path and explore.
These images show glimpses of that “other side”, accessible to those who would leave the beaten path and discover their own world by treating the rabbit hole as a portal rather than as an obstacle.
