Uncommoners is a study of the New Forest unlike any other: a series of environmental portraits that shed light on the idiosyncratic human ecosystem at the heart of one of the UK's most beloved National Parks. From extraordinary, intimate pictures of New Forest Commoners engaged in ancient agricultural practices to spectacular shots of athletes, workers, hobbyists and artists among the area's diverse landscape, Uncommoners is an expansive homage to a place that leaves a mark on all those who visit it - and to the people who call it their home.
