‘They take us away to the thin air of the future or the underworld of the past’, is a quote by poet and writer Edward Thomas describing the chalk paths of the South Downs. Thomas saw these paths as historical evidence of human activity, a form of participation in a continual communal history. Kathleen’s black and white landscape photographs look outwards searching for footpaths, tracks and roads as a way forward. The patterns, stories and navigational maps, of the night sky, punctuate these images and create voids waiting to be filled.
