The Fens is a region of reclaimed marshland in eastern England, which is now one of the richest arable areas of the UK. Paul Hart has been photographing this landscape of agribusiness for over ten years. FARMED (2009-2015) is the first in a three part series on the region.
The series is comprised of 56 photographs made by Hart as silver gelatin prints.
FARMED was first published by Dewi Lewis in 2016
with an essay by Collier Brown and is now in it’s second edition.
In 2018 Hart was awarded the
Wolf Suschitzky Photography Prize for this work.
Work from FARMED resides in the permanent collection at the V&A Museum,
the book can also be found in National Art Library Collection.
