At the beginning of 2013 the photographer Fern Leigh Albert became a trial member of the low-impact, off-grid project Steward Community Woodland. In a 32 acre woodland on the edge of Dartmoor National Park live eleven adults and seven children in handmade structures, they produce their own electricity and siphon water from a spring.

The series Wild Wood is a documentation of her time in the community and will continue as a photographic project for as long as she remains a full time resident. The artist hopes to inspire people to live closer to the land and make connections with the natural world. What began as a self-reflective documentation has evolved into a narrative looking at the way humans connect with nature.

Fern Leigh Albert is a freelance photographer who recently completed a post graduate diploma in Photography at the London College of Communication. Her current work in progress Wild Wood was shortlisted for the National Open Art Competition and the IdeasTap Photographic Award in 2013. It has been exhibited at Mother London, The Chelsea School of Art, The London College of Communication, Dream Space Gallery London and The Empire Theatre in Bristol.
