Photographers Tim Bowditch and Nick Rochowski have recently completed an unusual project, taking it upon themselves to visit every single underpass on the M25 and document them at night – some feature streams running underneath, others are footpaths or tunnels just big enough to let tractors through. By using a camera that specialises in taking photographs in total darkness, the black and white images pick up tiny details of these desolate environments and transform them into “lunar-like” landscapes. Tim and Nick also noticed the noise created above them on the motorway itself and decided to record the sounds they heard as an accompaniment to the work, adding to the uncanny atmosphere of a place whose aesthetics you usually wouldn’t look at twice.
‘Hind Land’ will be exhibited at The Front Room Gallery, London from June 5
