The Fens is a region of reclaimed marshland in eastern England, which is now one of the richest arable areas in the UK. Paul Hart has been photographing this landscape of agribusiness for over ten years. DRAINED (2016-2017) is the second part in a three part series on the region and concentrates on an area of land which lies barely above sea level located a few miles from The Wash. The series is comprised of 46 photographs made by Hart as silver gelatin prints. DRAINED was published in 2018 by Dewi Lewis with an essay by Francis Hodgson and in the same year Hart was awarded the inaugural Wolf Suschitzky Photography Prize for the series. Work from DRAINED resides in a number of important collections including the V&A and MoMA Library Collections.
