I believe all art is shaped by the time and place it came from. When I was younger I never had a dog so didn’t really venture into the landscape around Bromley but naturally I feel connected to the greyness, the music and feel of the area even though I haven’t lived there in so long. The Cotswolds on the other hand is an expansive beautiful place. I walk in the hills behind where we live nearly every day with my dog. Music sounds amazing here. Just you, the dog, the music and the hills. The sun sets over the Malverns and the views from Cleeve hill are like something from the mind of Tolkien. If I think about the films I enjoy they often have a strong connection to place such as Heat (LA), Lantana (suburban Sydney), LA Haine (Paris) even something otherworldly like A Clockwork Orange is described through the detail of the Woolwich housing blocks. There is in fact a brilliant short film set in the Cotswolds called Field directed by Duane Hopkins but it appears to no longer be online, it is brilliant however. The images above are taken over the course of three or four outings into darkest Gloucestershire.
