dogging (noun)

The practice of watching or engaging in exhibitionist sexual activity in a public place.

Our relationship to the landscape is often wrought with tension; we dominate the land and use it as we please. Taken during the day, these spaces appear just as they do in person – parks, carparks or reserves. There seems to be nothing out of the ordinary but in the evenings or organised times amongst other dogging members each photographed site is a place for sexual pleasure. I am not interested in portraying the people that may be involved with dogging nor the act itself but rather the spaces that they inhabit, alluding to the before or after moments and the things that we can not see.
