Hind Land is a collaborative work by photographers Nick Rochowski and Tim Bowditch, surveying the pedestrian walkways beneath London’s Orbital M25 motorway. Since it’s completion 25 years ago the M25 has dramatically changed the landscape of the surrounding area and come to define the boundary of the city.

We are fascinated by the voids left by the motorway as it carves through the landscape. The road divides the countryside in two, leaving a visible and audible rip in the environment above the ground, and a no-man's land beneath.

We aim to survey these voids at night, using an Achromatic Digital Back capable of creating wide spectrum black and white images, a technology often used for aerial surveillance, as it is able to record the visible as well as the infrared and ultraviolet parts of the spectrum.  NR & TB (excerpts).
