Caught by the River

The Somerset Floods

11th February 2016

In the winter of 2013-14, the Somerset Levels suffered severe flooding. Photographer Matilda Temperley documented the damage. Later compiled into a sell-out book entitled Under The Surface – Somerset Floods, the images won Matilda the Royal Photographic Society’s Vic Odden award in September 2015. Below are select images from the project.

Additional images of the floods, as well as examples of Matilda’s other work, can be found on her website.
