The Landmarks project presents an alternative perspective on the sacred landscape.
In comparison to the animist view, which perceives the sacred in the shape
and form of the land, this European journey explores how sacred space has
been fashioned through human creation and centuries of ritual.
I seek to pose the question - what creates the idea that a particular location
in some manner reflects the presence of the deities?
Is this significance created by the power we give to sacred sites? Is it
the concentration of energy through worship over many centuries? Or do these
places have their own inner resonance that attracts us to them in some way?
These images encompass a variety of locations in England, Scotland and France,
which have religious or sacred significance. They include ancient pilgrim's
paths, such as St Cuthbert’s Way and the route to Santiago de Compestela,
Christian Churches and the remnants of an earlier Pagan Europe.
