Hookstone Woods is a small woodland situated close to where I live in North Yorkshire and during the spring & summer of 2020 it became my refuge. The Covid 19 pandemic brought an inevitable focus on illness, death, economic uncertainties with disruption to lives & travel across the world. In the face of everything going on around the world this small area of woodland became my oasis of tranquility, the place where I went to recharge my spirits. With every visit my relationship with the woods deepened. On my photo explorations there I tried to capture the variety of emotions I was experiencing – the joy of nature, a connection with a simpler, less troubled world and getting sustenance from the reminder that in the woods life went on relatively untroubled.
