Unlike many suburbs that sprawl and fade into the countryside, this area of Bristol is more dramatically defined; being contained by the River Avon to the south, the port of Avonmouth and the Severn Estuary to the west, the motorways to the north, and of course the city to the east. The imagery within the series explores the topography and examines the proximity between industry and the domestic. The emptier spaces within the photographs become precious land that will inevitably be swallowed up by the ever sprawling city, saturating land that cannot expand any further.
