About

'Settlements' is a photographic record of self-built homes and structures in a small number of low impact land - based communities in Britain that explores ecologically sustainable ways of living.

Taken between 2004-2018, the images chart a period in the evolution of these communities through their homes, communal spaces, infrastructure, growing areas and a number of community portraits, taken at intervals. The photographs centre around four settlements: Steward Community Woodland, Brithdir Mawr, Tinkers Bubble and Landmatters.

To coincide with Spero’s exhibition a programme of talks, 'Planning Matters', led by Paul Chaney, will bring together leading experts in the eld of low impact development to explore the socio-political conditions restricting access to land that led to the formation of such communities and try to establish how current planning law could be affecting the UK’s ability to achieve sustainability targets.
