Artist Statement:

Shot during the twilight
hour, revealing contrast
between a romantic
view of the English
Countryside and its
industrial reality.

The rural environment –
an invisible factory,
generating the hum of
production amongst its’
dormant villages.

This series explores the
transitional state where
idealic meets necessity.

Hayden Wilde’s practice focuses on interpretation and fact, forming a blend of documentary and artistic representation. In his latest series, Hayden reveals the contrast between the romantic notion of the English countryside and its harsh industrial reality. Shot during the twilight hour, and presented as a sequence of hand-printed monochrome images, the series explores the transitional state where ideals meet necessity.
