Haymaker is a preview into Alan’s forthcoming and first Monograph. The project began after Alan was awarded the Environmental Awareness Bursary from the Royal Photographic Society. The harsh north of Canada is largely uninhabited by humans – yet deep in the fire dependent boreal forest (Earth’s largest land biome) a division or frontier has formed between relentless human endeavour to extract dangerous bitumen from the Tar Sands of Alberta and the rest of nature. Haymaker observes the event of a wildfire nicknamed “The Beast” which consumed 460,000 hectares of forest, became the largest mass evacuation and costliest natural disaster in Canadian history.

This project has allowed Alan to witness extreme conditions and human behaviour that has put of of the earth sub-systems on to the verge of a ecological tipping point.
