Over 100 years later, Lebas adopts this same state of travel, transported by Salisbury’s historic photographs. She has travelled to places in Scotland and Norfolk, retracing Salisbury’s steps, re-photographing the landscapes and gathering information on the landscapes ecology with the help of scientists.
