In the summer of 2015 Roach began visiting a new place to walk her dog. The hills in this place, she writes, were covered in amazing golden grasses. "The light and the wind caught them in a way that I can’t even begin to describe, my words could never do it justice."
Roach started photographing them, observing the changes as the weeks and months passed. As summer started to change, into autumn, and then winter the grass began to fade. It changed from a shimmering dense golden sea to a chaotic mass of lines and shapes all projecting off in different directions. The grasses became a trace of what they once were and eventually faded away to nothing, waiting to begin it all again in spring.
These explorations in photographic etching - photopolymer - capture the marks, the lines and the space created by the grasses as seasons change.
