Neal Grundy’s Safe from Harm Series Explores Coastal Erosion

 

Neal Grundy’s Safe from Harm photography series explores rock erosion of coastal landscapes, focusing on the south of England, where chalk cliffs are rapidly eroding. England’s coastline is among the fastest eroding in Europe, with some areas losing up to two meters annually. Grundy uses brightly colored fabric to draw attention to the consequences of erosion. The vivid materials highlight concrete sea defenses, fallen rocks, and other man-made interventions, emphasizing the fragility of these landscapes.

photo series raises Visual Warning on Environmental protection

 

The vibrant fabrics serve as a stark contrast to the natural environment, illustrating the impact of erosion and global warming. The series underscores the need to protect shorelines and the environment. By using colored fabric, Grundy draws parallels to societal practices of covering and protecting valuable items, such as wrapping gifts or unveiling theater curtains. The images, free from CGI or AI, offer a visual warning about the urgent need for environmental conservation.
