The Branscombe Project
Fixed Point Photography
Branscombe Parish Council has an extensive photographic archive which is administered by the Branscombe Project. The archive contains many images of village landscape, land-
In 2013 the Branscombe Project was involved in a HEAPs project created by English Heritage and the AONB. One aim was to add to the archival images by creating a Fixed Point Photography Project that recorded changes in the landscape over time.
What is Fixed Point Photography?
Fixed Point Photography is the process where images are taken at a regular interval (once per quarter) from a fixed point in the landscape. By taking the same images at regular intervals, they can then be compared and changes in land use and development recorded.
Chris Bass has continued to add to the fixed point photography by taking images 4 times a year at each fixed point since 2014 and he will be continuing this work in future.
