MB Photography | Projects | Unseen Beacons


When out in the landscape it is easy to overlook the mundane and the ugly and just focus on the pretty view, but these are all part of the environment in which we live and often tell a more interesting story than the ubiquitous oversaturated sunset.

In this ongoing project I am trying to capture views of the Brecon Beacons that are edited out of most landscape imagery, and show more of the everyday life that goes on in the National Park and some of its history.
