Publisher Note

"Wild Wood" has been conceived as a Border Ballad and takes as its inspiration the Carrifran Wildwood project and the ancient woods at Deuchar and Tinnis Stiel in Yarrow.

Opening the book and turning the pages is analogous to entering and exploring the Wild Wood where different moods and feelings move the viewer through the visual narrative.

This is a book that creates a space of immersion. The sequences use photographic sequences of movement through a wooded space to produce an expressive, interior space. The merging of subjective, interior conditions and apparently exterior perceptions is emphasized by the way the photography inflects the record of a perceptual event.

In 2000 Wild Wood won The Nexus Press Atlanta Book Prize.
