The story of the Lower River Otter from the river’s perspective

Hi and welcome to my Final Major Project for my Photography Masters Degree with Falmouth University.

Riparian is a video/photography project that follows the life and times of the lower River Otter. Capturing the rivers journey and meeting the wildlife ecology and people that call the river and surrounds their home.

For this project, the river section we will be following goes from Colaton Raleigh, through Otterton and down to the sea at Budleigh Salterton.

Riparian represents the rivers own journey and as it flows ever onwards it captures stories, events and scenes that are represented here in stills images and short films.

Please keep visiting this site for more information and to see how this project progresses.

If you would like to get involved then please feel free to contact me.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Clinton Devon Estates for permitting this project to happen and a huge thank you to all who have contributed and supported this project so far.
