A growing woodland 2015

July 9, 2015

Gabriel Hemery

2015 is the 19th year of photographing the same view of the landscape, albeit with some gaps between some years.

My first post about this photomonitoring project provides more information about the location – read more

I’m looking forward to being interviewed this morning by BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz on BBC Radio Oxford. I will be talking about forests and the work of the Sylva Foundation — the Oxfordshire-based charity I co-founded five years ago — and The New Sylva which was released in the US this week.

Will’s programme starts at 0900, and I will be on between 1000-1030.

You can listen to the programme on the BBC website for one week (listen from 1:08)
