Lee Chantler’s photographs are set in the wintery marshlands of the Fens. The Fens act as a stirring subject for artists and tourists who flock there during the warm summer months, but become neglected marshlands during the winter period.
It is this neglected landscape that is the subject of Lee Chantler’s The Fens series as he chooses bleak misty weather over picturesque sunny skies as his main focus. Chantler presents an unsettling scene devoid of any human presence and yet creates a calming landscape full of lure and seduction.
